Just wondering what people's thoughts were on Pho Vietnam (location: 1280 Kennedy Rd, Scarborough). I just got back from there last night and was going to place a moderately good review - until I realized that something in the food has given me a nasty case on insomnia (MSG anyone?). Hence my posts during strange hours of the night last night.
Highlights included the Pho noodle soup, and the Bun (vermicelli with spring roll & grilled pork). Downers - the extremely meaty and soggy mango salad with shrimp chips (?).
The soup base was a bit better than the typical haunts (Pho 88, Pho Hoa, Phaw Chey Tao - phonetic translation; located in Chinatown, Pho Hung) in that its broth is lighter and uses more herbs. The broth is clearer than the other broths as well - but perhaps it's just me or it's one of those days - but the MSG seems a bit more heavy than usual (or it could just be that I ate dinner later than usual).
I'd go back again - though I'd make it a lunch date.
Does anyone have any great Pho/Vietnamese restaurant recommendations?
