      Thanks for the recommandation.
      I tried the duck leg noodle soup & liked it. It's not available in most other Pho restos.

      I like the 'saw' that come with their Pho too. Most Pho restos do not come with 'saw'.

      I'll go back & try more new items.

          It's a long sawtooth herb with a clean taste of cilantro. The texture is more crisp than cilantro.

          Any one know which other resto serve 'saw' with their beef pho besides pho phoung?

            Why thank you ace, another reason to get over and try that place...

    2. I second Pho Phuong. Tasty, cheap, and CLEAN.

      I noticed Gaucho BBQ has opened up on the corner of Landsdowne and Dundas. Anyone try this place out yet?

        Gaucho's does average or better churrasco chicken with the standard rice/potato ball option, but also seem to have a more adventurous menu than a lot of places, with various stews, soups, salads, etc. on special through the week. On weekends they do a Brazilian stew called Feijoada. It was too out there meat-wise for me (I don't even want to know what was in it) but might appeal to hardcore foodies. I wouldn't necessarily recommend a trip across town to try the place out, but it's definitely a most welcome addition to a nearly taste-free neighbourhood.

      2. Thanks for the pho phuong reco... I'll definitely go there! this week, though, I opted for Fresh (Queen/Crawford) mostly because I knew where it was and was a bit short on time. Now I can't wait to have pho!
