Good Pho in Vancouver? Does it exsist?

kati3 | Sep 11, 2012 12:57 PM

Hi Chowhounders,

I am new in town, moved from Edmonton where I have been spoiled by Pho Tau Bay (a pho place so popular, someone registered a domain to decipher its current open/closed status

I have tried and tried and tried to find a Pho place that is similar in quality and price without avail. They have a full bodied broth (spiced/peppery) with tender noodles but the real game changer is their home made chili oil. It is so tasty, the chili flakes are soft so the texture is nice, spicy, a little garlicky and a little salty. There is very little MSG in their broth and the place is family run.

The places I have tried in Vancouver have been unreasonably priced or plastic noodles or overwhelmingly salty/msg or just lacking in flavor all together.

Have any of you sampled Tau Bay and could recommend a place for me to try? Or if you havent sampled, do you think you know a place that fits the bill?
