my favorite pho that died was Pho THang Long on Main st. That dude used to have the biggest portions and the best tasting broth for like 6 bucks a bowl. Can feed an amry with the bowl that big.

Coworker asks if that's all they have, he says yes, then we walk out lol.

Man, I miss that place. I used to go there after class when I was at SFU in the late 90s. Still the best broth I've had after all these years and the portion were huge. The old man that worked there was great.

^yes exactly. Their springrolls were pretty shit though, but man ole man was that soup ever good. That owner (short little, stocky nammer guy) was always wearing shorts even in the dead of winter, he had like military cargo shorts, or some sort of shorts on.

Closer to my parents home, im still missing Bao Chau now that its closed. God, that was my go to Pho for years

This was really good. I'm a map nerd so the store is worth a visit for me. Thanks for sharing this.

Yeah, it's only 2 dishes there. It's pretty solid stuff too. Imagine a Michelin starred Tokyo ramen place that only serves 2 things except WAY trashier.

If anything having only 2 dishes ensures that there is high turnaround of ingredients. You'l be less likely to get sick eating there than a place with 50 things on the menu that people rarely order.

On their last week of opening. I sauced 5 large ass spring rolls for only $10. The last place where spring rolls that are 2-3x the size are $2 whereas everywhere else it's $3-6 for 1 dinky roll. Bao Chau is good for dry, not so much pho.

I gotta give props to Hai Phong by Kingsway and Knight - their curry broth is great. Just spicy enough to give you a mild runny nose while you're eating. Used to Doordash it all the time until I moved into Burnaby.

For me it’s Petite Saigon in Van and Kim Hoang in Surrey

Don’t ever really go anywhere else unless I’m going for a bowl while at work because I’d rather just go to the 2 aformentioned places

Pho 68 on Edmonds is actually not bad for vermicelli Dishes, the soup kinda sucks though

Lol my Vietnamese brother in law said Thai Son is ok, they are the "McDonalds/fast food of Vietnamese restaurants". He recommends Pho Duy.

I found Pho Duy pretty good, a bit on the pricier side but large portions and good quality ingredients. Since they only have 2 items on the menu, I'm sure they've mastered them! Unfortunately their store hours are somewhat limited (10:30am-2:30pm daily except Monday, closed holidays). I've heard they close early once they run out of ingredients.

Personally I also go to Thai Son (Garden City & Alderbridge) with my family of 4 cuz I'm cheap! If I'm feeling generous, I also like Lotus in Richmond (No. 5 & Cambie) but they're more expensive.

I like Mui Ngo Gai on Kingsway/Victoria. Their pho isn't amazing but it's solid and the rest of the menu is full of good stuff. Service is also pretty friendly and the place is clean so suitable for bringing your white friends or your family.

Curry broth!? I gotta try that. I haven't been there in so long I forgot how it was.

Anyone else judge a Pho place by how they make their cha gio/spring rolls? I'm finding less places make them with rice paper so I've been buying the frozen/half-fried ones at kim chau deli

There was a pho place in that little strip mall at Kingsway and willingdon that I miss but not for the pho. They had the BEST lemongrass chicken I’ve ever had, hands down.

I’m on mission to find somewhere else that compares. So far, no dice.
