I didn't think this place was all that great. I heard all the hype about it and went there one day. I was like....uhhhhhh.

I haven't been to Kim Phung in a long time but their pho is good. Thanks for reminding me. I forgot about that place. As for Bao Chau, I personally don't think it's that good. Compared to Le Petite Saigon, I always have to chug down endless glasses of water and their spring rolls aren't even that great to be really honest. Pho Van - a Vancouver institution. It's too bad Mr. Van sold the one in Chinatown. I grew up in Chinatown so my parents would take me to Pho Van every now and then. The only one he has left is the one on Fraser.
Seems like me and you have quite similar tastes. My mom used to take us to Pho Van all the fuckin' time cuz it was kick ass. We'd order che ba mao and other stuff. I'm not a big fan of Bao Chau either, the time I had it it was nothing special and super loaded with MSG. I absolutely miss the old Le Petite Saigon, I loved that place dearly.

I didn't know there was still a Pho Van around. Gotta check out that place.

I'll ask my parents about the Southern vs Northen Pho...since my dad is from the north and my mom from the south and see what I can get out of them.

Thai son is still in Richmond?

If you're referring to the No 3 Road location across from Richmond Center Mall, the whole plaza's been closed for the longest time.

It's on Fraser Street just south of Kingsway. You can't miss it.

According to this site on pho I quote, "Northern style pho tends to be simpler and is made with less ingredients. There are fewer cuts of meat and small slices of ginger are laid on top of the soup. The pho is served without bean sprouts or herbs. Instead, it is accompanied by green chilies and lime only. Southern style pho is a complex dish made from a dozen ingredients. Bean sprouts, fresh basil and saw herb are typically served with each bowl. As with the Northern style pho, green chilies and lime are used as condiments."

So I guess there really are no places that serve real Northern style pho? My closest guess would have been Au Petit Cafe and maybe Kim Phung.

The owner of thai son sold the place when the canada line was being built to them for like 600k or something redicilous like that.

I went to a good place on some street... all i know is there is a gas station, a italian resteeraunt accross the street, and i think a dry cleaner? It was around rupert street.

Judging by the picture, I was under the impression that any typical place in Vancouver served southern pho which is your first picture. I was told that Kim Phung served so-called southern style where the broth is a little heavier on the spices and is darker in complexion but judging by your photos, it looks like it's the opposite? When I was in Paris, I had pho in Saint Lazare and the family that ran the joint was from southern Vietnam and that's what it looked like (your picture of northern pho.)

I guess it's time to go out and to find out for myself.
I was told that Northern Pho holds greater influence from Chinese cuisine, and as a result the noodles are somewhat thicker, almost like chinese "hoh fun" noodles. The broth is also simpler as it gives a distinct, clear flavor whereas Vancouver-type Southern pho broth is quite complex, having been prepared with spices and star anise etc. The other difference is that they give lots of chopped onions on top, and have a wider emphasis on different types of meat balls.

I haven't gone to Paris yet, but will go in February. Surprisingly, the Vietnamese area in Berlin had quite good pho as well, but nothing compared to San Francisco.

Once, I went to Kim Pehn Xe Lua alone for lunch (I used to work nearby), and this zombie woman was there working. I went clubbing that night, came back with my friends at like 3AM? and she served me Pho again. Quite disturbing.

So how exactly to do judge wether a certain Pho location is better than another?

ive been to a couple in Richmond and they all taste the same to me. Now your talking to a Chinese person right now with pretty open taste to any type of food.

But Pho is basically Hot Soup and prepped up raw stuff put into the soup.

im not belittle vietnamese food but i want to know how to judge how it is good compared to others.

Hmm... I suppose it just tastes different and will have a taste of "quality" if its good. NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING beats home made pho that's been boiling for most of the day with all the proper ingredients. Once you have a taste of that shit...nothing is every the same afterwards. My aunt made some one time...holy shit. That's all I can say. I think I ate like 5 big bowls of pho. Sadly, I haven't visited her every since.
