PHO without MSG
We love Toronto Pho but with a young toddler and a new baby on the way we're trying to avoid MSG. Most Pho stock is pre-made and our favourite restaurants have informed us that they can't make a pho without it. Anybody know of any Viatnamese restaurants in downtown or the west end that don't use MSG?
By personal 'best choice' list:
1- Hanoi 3 Seasons
2- Golden Turtle
Unfortunately, options are quite limited. There is a belief among most proprietors that MSG is a necessity, has ALWAYS been used, that there is nothing wrong with it, and that omitting it will give them a competitive disadvantage as the soup won't taste as good as their competitors... As you can tell, I've tried to champion MSG elimination... :)
