Pho Huong

Please note – since Pho Huong was shut down, I no longer eat here.

Pho is the ultimate comfort food. Nothing beats an oversized bowl of hot beefy broth in an abundance of slippery noodles. I like getting a mouthful of noodles, thinly sliced beef, crunchy bean sprouts and basil all in one bite. For this post, let’s listen to something pho-nomenal. Have you ever listened to Vietnamese pop?

I like Pho Huong Vietnamese Noodle House because its close to our house and cheap. This small restaurant is always busy, even at off times. I think its popular because the portions are massive, the prices are cheap, and there aren’t a whole lot of Vietnamese restaurants in the hood.

Usually, the sate pho ($9.99) is spicy and full of peanut flavour. However, this time around, the broth tasted one-dimensional and flat. The basil was not fresh like it usually is – it was bruised and a bit slimy.

The lemongrass chicken bun ($9.99) was light on the vermicelli noodles but big on the veggies –  lettuce, cucumbers, carrots and green onions. The chicken was dark meat and a generous portion. Spring rolls were all meat – it tasted like minced pork.

This isn’t the best Vietnamese I’ve had, but for the price and convenience, Pho Huong Viet is pho-bulous.
