Fresh pho noodles in Calgary?

Leamico Mar 20, 2011 01:09 AM

Hello all. I've been reading all the posts on pho in Calgary but I have a question for you all. Do you know of any pho restaurants in calgary that make fresh rice noodles for their pho?

I've been to about 13-15 different Vietnamese restaurants in Calgary and they all use dried rice noodles in their pho. I was fortunate enough to spend some time in Saigon last year and had some delicious pho but the best places always used fresh noodles.

Thanks in advance!

    Not sure bout fresh vs. dried but I will say that my favourite Pho is at Quynh in the NE. I especially give them credit for how they package their take out. They give you a bowl (the kind you can actually eat out of), a carton of soup and a bag of veggies. Other places either just mix it all together or give you a styrafoam carton - no good for eating soup out of. So for those that want take out Pho - Quynh is great!

      I have yet to go to a place that makes their own noodles, but if you manage to find a place, I'd love to know about it. It's pretty much just packaged noodles in Calgary/most places.

        Noodle World on 17th se uses fresh noodles in some soups, but I do not know if their basic pho uses fresh.

        Their spicy seafood soup uses a fresh thick rice noodle that varies in length and has pointy ends where it is "broken".

        In any event it is imo the best pho in town.
