      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?

      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.

        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!
