“Go-to place in Richmond Hill for a Vietnamese Beef Pho fix!”

Reviewed 10 July 2016

Vietnamese restaurants in Richmond Hill are far and few, let alone good ones. The opening of this cute, tiny and cozy 'Pho' place was a happy and welcoming sight.

After trying it this lunch time, I would rate it as one of the best in the area. For the price, quantity and portion of the beef Pho was slightly on the stingy side. ( $7.50 for Medium, which is more like a small one in most other places ). However, this short fall was more than make-up by the tasty broth and a choice of either fresh or dehydrated noodles. Menu choices are limited, which is actually a good thing since the kitchen can focus their effort more on quality.

Though our rare beef was slightly cooked, quality of the meat is commendable. The broth, as eluded to above was dense and tasty. However, the taste profile, though delicious and full of umami goodness, is slightly unfamiliar to my palette, lacking the aroma of a major spice component - Star anise, but replaced by some unknown ones. The side order of supposedly fatty beef brisket was full of beefy taste and 'chopstick' tender. However, I would prefer to see a bit more fatty goodness to the meat. Spring rolls we ordered had genuine Vietnamese wrappers and delicious filling. Good but nothing to shout about. A grilled pork and fried egg on rice dish ordered by my foodie friend's wife was surprisingly generous and the meat grilled to perfection and tasty. Lastly, unfortunately, the iced ' dripped' Vietnamese coffee was slightly weak and lacking in condensed milk quantity.

Overall, though not as good as Pho Metro ( Major Mac and Kennedy ), however, for a quick Pho fix, this easily accessible place is a very good second choice.
