Made pho, bone marrrow, star anise and other spices for the broth. Pho noodles from T&T and hot pot steak slices



Pho dedication ftw

You can't miss it with its huge sign. It's on the south east corner of Vic and 41st. I like the food there but it seems to have a northern Vietnamese touch to it and not many places serve it this way. I personally like it a lot there.

I know this isn't local, but it was worth a mention

Pot de Pho in San Francisco. It is not the traditional style pho place as it is quite trendy inside. Mainly caters to gwai los who don't know better...as reflected by the $10 per bowl price.





Salad Rolls - $6 - The dipping sauce is quite nice. Typical peanut sauce, with a bit of spicyness to it


Spring Rolls - $6 - The butter lettuce was a nice touch.


Condiments


Medium sized pho


Beef slices were great. Different cut of beef than the usual kind in Vancouver. Very soft, and lots of it.

Meat was good, noodles were thicker than usual, but good as well. However, I've always thought of broth as the most important part of the pho. The broth was quite dissapointing as it was bland. Didn't have a distinct flavour initially, and didn't leave anything on the aftertaste either.

Good experience, but wouldn't go back. I do have to mention that my spring rolls were free tho

That colour of soup base is typical of most (not all) Vietnamese places in NorCal at least with my findings.

It's doable. Ha Long Bay in Richmond is owned by a high school friend of mine. I used to always bug him about how great the pho his mother made at home was and finally, they turned a joke into a reality where his family operates the business.

Pho An Nam on Granville in Richmond. Liked them better than Tai Son. Not strictly a Pho joint, and I have had better, but again it's good and better than Tai Son for Pho and very good grill dishes - also better than Tai Son. Have to try their Banh Xeo next.
