In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.

Pho Pasteur

Went to Pho Pasteur and actually ordered something new...

banh hoi with grilled pork banh hoi with grilled pork I've always wanted to order the banh hoi but never have for some reason. What they do is they give you the plate of stuff above, and some rice paper wrap things on the side (which I don't have a pic of). You dip the rice paper in warm water and they become soft. It's just like the wrapper you get on the fresh rolls. Then you just roll stuff up yourself. It's delicious.

Pho Pasteur

Ugh, looks like my web host went down for a couple of days. Back though. Here's some stuff from Pho Pasteur.

Hue style noodle soup with beef and pork Hue style noodle soup with beef and pork The appetizer platter is a thing you need 4 people to order. Pretty big thing. It came with fresh and crispy rolls, shrimp toast, chicken & beef teriyaki, the orange shrimp thing which I dunno how to describe, and a chicken salad in the middle. We usually get the rolls. I liked the shrimp toast a lot, actually... teriyaki wasn't that good though. I also went with what they listed as "Hue style noodle soup" which has both beef and pork. The guy said it was spicy (it wasn't really, even though it was reddish). It used a different noodle.. thicker than the usually ones and rounded, but still not thick. It had a pork leg, and I don't know what part of beef. It was alright, but I like the normal stuff better.


Bart had a pho craving the other night, so I accompanied him to PPQ on Irving.

imperial rolls imperial rolls I wasn't really hungry so I didn't feel like a bowl of pho. I just got some rolls to keep him company. Pretty standard stuff. He said his pho was good though.

Pho Bich Nga

Everyone remember Pho Shizzle? Well say hello to Pho Bich Nga!

Pho Bich Nga

Pho Bich Nga Pho Bich Nga - authentic Vietnamese cuisine Some people think Pho Shizzle could be a fake. I'll give you the arthur hungry guarantee that Pho Bich Nga does in fact exist. It's in Vancouver, on Kingsway, and I took the picture myself! We didn't actually try it though as we were there at like 4pm in between meals. That will be for another day...


Pho Shizzle

Haven't been eating anything interesting lately. In the mean time, check this place out:
