pnom penh doesn't open that late ...

i tried asian 54 on Kingsway & Royal Oak ... portions there are 1 size but they're big enough. Quite good.

Another 24hr location would be Gold Train on Kingsway & Joyce. I find it better than the lame Pho Hoang (?) chain

Rock a large bowl with a minced pork roll or a salad roll on the side.

usually does the trick for me

I was gonna try out the Asia 54 after you said it was good. Then you said the pho joint @ kingsway and joyce was good. Now, I question your taste.

learn to read ... i said Asian 54 was good, but I was also commenting on the 24hr late night joints. Gold Train sucks but it's heck of a lot better than Pho Hoang at 4am in the morning

That place stank of raw meat and had flies hovering all over their neon lights. I thought things couldn't get any worse until these hookers (fat ones at that) decided to stand right outside the window 1 foot away from me.

^^^ hey, that goes with the territory!! What did you expect? haha...

i tend to grab takeout from them more now ... $7.50 for a lemon grass chicken and i'm out of there within 5 minutes. One time the old guy charged me $8 for it and I think I got more chicken & rice.

Again, good to satisfy the craving late at night, but this is not a place to admire the ambiance.

Not pho, but Phnom Pehn is easily my favourite Vietnamese/Cambodian place. I've been going there for ... gosh... more years than I'm willing to admit to

Pho Van as mentioned is a good place. When I'm there though, I typically order the dry rice vermicelli with pork, spring rolls and veggies. I swear, it's an infinite bowl of food. Hits the spot when I don't want to be weighed down by salty broth.

Nobody has mentioned Buu Dien near Rupert and First, across the street from Blockbuster Video. Good subs - their grilled pork sub is, IMO, definitely worth killing for. About 5 years ago, Buu Dien had a killer sandwich shop at a stripmall on Fraser and 18th or so. Before it burned down, it rocked something fierce to the tune of 4 or 5 subs for $10! The subs at the Rupert location are still good but no longer as cheap.

I think it's Renfrew, not Rupert.

I go there sometimes myself but it's been a while. From what I can recall, their food is pretty good too!

I don't think that place is very good. The subs are not that good at all. Food is mediocre. I am a bit harsh though. I would only recommend places that I have 100% faith in that the person would like. I was recommeded to go to this place based on their subs and their food, but when I went there everything sucked, including the service.

I'm heading down to San Francisco and Los Angeles tomorrow. I'm going to try some pho at various locations and see if there are significant differences.

Okay, I just had a huge bowl (unintentionally) of pho just an hour ago in San Fran. I'll start a new thread with pics and a review later on.
