Rare beef Pho is my favourite Vietnamese dish ever and this is where I enjoy it the most when I'm in Toronto. Great spring rolls and vermicelli bowls. It's a no nonsense place to eat well for cheap.

I come here once couple weeks to satisfy my pho craving. I was brought here by my Vietnamese coworker and I really enjoy their pho. They have a good balance of meat portion, size, and taste.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
