Good place for Bun Bo Hue or Com Ga?

I miss the stuff like crazy... The place I use to go to long time ago changed owners and now I'm craving for some of that magical soup. Most places have crappy ones where they just make instant bun bo hue or use pho soup and dump chili oil in it. I want the real stuff!!!! Just like back in Nam =( I miss food in Vietnam... Also anyone know where to get real Com Ga? Like the one with green papaya on top w/ the rice cooked in chicken broth? Similar to Hainen chicken but better!

Cao Van in Richmond (on Buswell and Saba) has my favourite Bun Bo Hue. It's very authentic. It's got the lemongrass, pigs knuckles, pork blood and all.

Petite Saigon on Hastings used to have pretty decent bun bo hue. Used to hook my dad up good. Now that they've changed owners, no more :/

Song Houng has one of the best Bun Bo Hue, they are known for this. Anything else on their menu is mediocre.

For Com Ga go to Thai Son.

Best Bon Bo Hue is at Thai Hang on Hastings across from Dairy Queen. It's even better than Song Houng.

The BEST Bun Bo Hue you'll ever have is at Cafe Xu Hue, it's as authentic as it gets:

2226 Kingsway
Vancouver, BC V5N 2T7
(604) 454-9940

Pho Hoang is rated best Pho in general for Vancouver, Le do is good too.
