Previously known as Pho Hoang, the kids of the original owners have successfully taken over and transformed the restaurant with a modern menu and ambiance.
Located on Main and 17th, there is an ample amount of street parking available and it is also easily transit accessible. The popularity of the restaurant is evident as there is often a lineup.
Sài Gòn (Hand made rice paper rolls) (3 choices of meat to choose from prawn, pork, and chicken) ($6.00)
I went with the prawn. It was nicely wrapped in the rice paper with fresh ingredients.
Bún Thịt Nướng Chả Giò Tôm (Choice of chicken, pork, or beef) ($13.00)
This dish was amazing presentation wise. It came with a grilled prawn skewer which I wish had the shells removed. I made a good choice choosing chicken as it was tender and well-seasoned. For me, I would eat this over a steaming bowl of pho on a hot day.
Pho Hoang ($11)
Their house special pho which contained thinly sliced beef sirloin, brisket, tripe, tendons, and meatballs. The broth was perfectly balanced while being clean and flavourful.
If you’re strictly looking for pho, this is probably not the place. Their menu doesn’t focus heavily on noodle soup, but rather more on a modern and unique twist of traditional Vietnamese dishes which can be exciting for those who are adventurous.
