Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant Review

Situated directly on the corner of Main Street and East 30th Avenue in the Riley Park neighbourhood of Vancouver, Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant is a very popular local Vietnamese joint. Regulars line up on weekends to enjoy the restaurant’s piping hot bowls of pho, dry vermicelli dishes and beer crab. And it can get so […]

Ba Le Deli & Bakery (Kingsway) Review

Unfamiliar with banh mi? Well, they’re traditional Vietnamese sandwiches served on French baguettes. We’ve had authentic banh mi from street food carts in Vietnam (you can read about it here). If you’re a banh mi fan and live in Vancouver, then you’ve most likely been to a Ba Le location. There are three of these […]

Ba Le Vietnamese (Kona, Hawaii)

We happened upon Ba Le Vietnamese in the Kona Coast Shopping Center one morning while searching for a quick bite to eat before we hit the beach. We were intrigued. The restaurant had a similar logo to the Ba Le locations in Vancouver (Kingsway, Chinatown, and Surrey) – although we’re not certain whether or not […]

Tung Hing Bakery Review – Vietnamese Sub (Bánh Mì) Sandwiches

Tung Hing Bakery was founded almost thirty years ago by Executive Chef Lien, and it was one of the first Chinese/Vietnamese bakeries to open in Toronto, ON, in 1985. Currently Tung Hing has five different bakeries located across the Greater Toronto Area, and luckily for us Vancouverites, there is one location in Vancouver on Kingsway, […]

A Taste Of Vietnam Review

A Taste of Vietnam is located on West Broadway, near Oak Street in Vancouver. You’ll notice the blue awning with white and yellow lettering of this Fairview Vietnamese restaurant that was founded by Hannah in 2005. The restaurant has been serving delicious pho and other Vietnamese specialties with Hannah’s signature friendly service for almost seven […]

Phnom Penh Review – Vancouver’s Famous Cambodian & Vietnamese Restaurant

Phnom Penh (or “Gum Bean” as it is referred to in Cantonese) is a legendary Vietnamese/Cambodian restaurant in Vancouver. We’ve been eating here for what seems like over ten years, so I’m not sure how we haven’t reviewed it yet! Since the days when Gary and I would visit his brother and sister here on […]

Pho Gizmo Review – Bánh Mì On The Westside

There are slim pickings when it comes to good Pho on Vancouver’s Westside and even less to choose from when it comes to great Bánh Mì joints. Some refer to it as “the decent Vietnamese food divide” with Eastside restaurants serving far superior, yet less expensive dishes. Pho Gizmo, however, appears to be an exception […]

Gold Train Express II (West Broadway) Vietnamese Restaurant Review

A few people mentioned Gold Train Express II was a decent pho restaurant in Kits. It’s not. This restaurant is confusing. Is it a Quizno’s? A baby store? A money exchange? An English pub? “Hot Taste of Vietnamese Food” is their main signage, but a smaller sidewalk sign reads “Pho Gold Train Express”. What’s the […]

Kim Penh Xe Lua Vietnamese Restaurant Review

Late night eats and 24-hour establishments are few and far between in Vancouver. That’s where Kim Penh Xe Lua fills the void of Vietnamese restaurants offering middle-of-the-night pho and banh mi. The restaurant, located on West Broadway (near Cambie), is really spartan and tackily decorated – but that was to be expected. We ordered Vietnamese […]

Wok Box North Vancouver Review

The company, founded in Alberta in 2004, has grown to included 58 stores nationwide, an international location in Lebanon, and will soon add franchises in the United States.
