Pho Hung Tips (6)

Pho Hung: Affordable Vietnamese food served in big portions!

Just north of Dundas West on Spadina, you cannot ignore and laugh a little at the name of Pho Hung. However, don't get fooled, they make amazing Pho.
The menu either is not too overwhelming unlike some Chinese restaurants (I understand, this is a Vietnamese restaurant). The menu is simple and easy to read.
And yes, they're THAT inexpensive. However, don't assume that the portions are petit. A small bowl is big enough for an average person. Just look around the restaurant, most people are ordering the Small.
Situated in Chinatown at the heart of downtown Toronto it isn't hard to to this place especially if you were around Chinatown, Kensington Market or Queen St. West already. You can either take the streetcar or walk from these places (especially on a beautiful day)

Favorite Dish My favourite definitely is their Congee.
Don't just get fooled that they only serve Pho here, try also their Congee. I usually order The shrimp congee and that fills me up enough. Order some of their side dish like the deep fried Spring Roll for $3.50 (as of Jan. 2009, 2 spring rolls) if you need a little more filling. As for beverage, you can get by with their tea, it's free. Pop, juiced and alcohol also served.

Pho Hung: The best phos and buns

I love this place! It is the best vietnamese phos and bun dishes I've seen in North America. And unlike many vietnamese restaurants this one offers vegetarian dishes. If I go alone, I like the one on Bloor best (200 Bloor Street West), and it's upstairs so you can get a seat with a view. I like this one because it clearly explains whats vegetarian in English. At the Chinatown location ( 350 Spadina Avenue), you may end up using lots of gestures to make sure you dont get a beef pho, as the veggie stuff isn't apparent on the menu.

Favorite Dish The pho soups, bun (rice noodle) dishes, and stir fries are all great and inexpensive. You get plenty of food.

Pho Hung: For Pho or Bun -- go here.

Great Vietnamese restaurant, with wonderful outside windowed garden area in the heart of Toronto's Chinatown West. Authentic Pho and Bun (vietnamese noodle dish) approved of by my wife.

Favorite Dish We love bun, which is rice vermicelli mixed with lettuce, thai basil, carrots, peanuts, cucumbers, and other salad vegitables. Add to this mix the meat of your choice, and mix in some sweet/spicy fish sauce, some vietnamese chili sauce, and you've got yourself quite the authentic meal.

We always enjoy trying asian food throughout the world to see its authenticity, and it is no surprise that this is close to home.

Pho Hung: delicious soup

The decor is nothing special, but the Pho (broth soup) is delicious. Take a seat, the waiter will bring tea, menus and a piece or paper and pen where YOU WRITE in your order, price, quantity and all. They'll then add it up. It's all very cheap and very good. I also recommend the lemonade made with sugar and fresh lemon juice. Pay at the cash register and leave a tip in the tip box. It was so good I went here twice in a couple of days!

Pho Hung: Killer Pho

The Chinatown location is spartan, but crowded (unlike the deserted Bloor location - ugh). But you're not there to admire the walls, you're there for the pho. I do like a good bowl of pho and Pho Hung is among the finest. Served with fresh herbs. The hot sauce sucks, though, which is a major drawback since your only other option for heat is Thai chilis and those are deadly when they don't have time to diffuse in the broth. Their Vietnamese coffee isn't anything special, but I do like the lemonade (lemon juice squeezed into a glass with ice and a spoonful of sugar).

Favorite Dish Pho. What else would I order?
