Must find Pho Sate (satay)

The Chemist | Jul 11, 200805:06 AM     20

I moved to Montreal from Winnipeg just over two years ago. For most types of food (and most everything else), Montreal is a REAL step up, believe me. There are just two things that I simple cannot find and can no longer live without. The item that I wish to discuss in this thread is Pho Sate. The other article will be addressed in a separate thread, because it will easily overshadow the discussion on Vietnamese food.

Pho Sate is a variation on Vietnamese Pho soup. The difference is that Pho Sate has a spiciness and heartiness from the addition of some sort of chili-peanut paste. When done correctly, it's heaven on earth... the most satisfying soup in existence. My sources from my favorite Winnipeg Pho spot (Thanh Huong) tell me that it's a specialty of Northern Vietnamese cooking and that there are moslty southern Vietnamese in Montreal, thus the lack of Pho Sate on menus.

What I NEED from you chowhounds is reports of Pho Sate. Please tell me where I can find it and if it's any good.

I did follow one report of Pho Sate all the way to Ville St. Laurent (somewhere with 'paris' in the name) and it DID serve Pho Sate but it was unspeakable oily and vile.

Please... Help.
