Best Bun Bo Hue in Lower Mainland



Hello iím in search of the best Bun Bo Hue in the lower mainland. My love for spice is endless, and BBH is hands down the best asian noodle dish to me.

Places ive tried BBH:

Cafe Xu Hue : 6.9/10 - was highly recommended by peers but was OK. Wasnt that spicy and there wasnt that much meat. Soup was okay

Hoi An : 7/10 - hit or a miss. In the past it was pretty flavorful and spicy. Soup was super tasty

Pho Viet : 6.5/10 - meat is good. Soup is OK but it is not spicy in the least bit

Pho Lan : 6.8/10 - big portions but soup is meh. And the spicy oil is really meh, but meat is good

Pho Thai Hang 2 : 7/10 - soup very tasty and i was sweating like a fat fuck when i was eating it. Not that much meat, and they add some random veggies in there ive never seen in BBH before (cabbage?)

Show me the way to 10/10 BBH. I guess if its seattle or whatever im down to venture out to try

i personally like the one from cafe xu hue the best but some other delicious ones can be had at song huong and pho cilantro both in east van. pho thai son has a decent one as well with a big portion but I dont think they add pork blood to it

Different strokes for different folks. For me, and I'm only commenting on Vancouver only is that Cafe Xue is by far the #1 and everything else is just aight or not good at all.

Wouldn't hurt to give it one more go and if you feel the same way then there ain't no going back after that. Fool me once, fool me twice...

Speaking of Viet Noodles, the fish pho at Bun Cha Ca Hoang Yen is fucking bomb but beware, lineups galore.

Had Bun Bo Hue in Hue before, had like four bowls at the highest reviewed places on tripadvisor. Wasn't as solid as the BBH in North America.

Went to LemonGrass on kingsway today.
Tried there BBH with Pho noodles. Quite tasty. Soup was flavorful and spicy. Lots of meats too.

Anyone try the new-ish pho place on 2nd Ave., I think it's just west of Ontario. They have satay soups but also BBH according to their takeout menu.
