Vietnamese food : which one?
Thinking of trying either Anh Dao or Kim Bo.
Heard they are both good but for different foods?
Which one? What to order?
anh dao is good for bun and the rice paper wraps (for the name), they are also above average for most other items on their menu. tho i do have issue that they seem to not use mint where i would have expected it.
kim bo used to be excellent for a slightly more fine dining version, but last visit it was way off. i used to like the 7 beef dish and the frogs legs there. but both disappointed last trip.
I am a fan of Anh Dao, the bun is tasty and the grilled meats are especially awesome. I've heard mixed reviews about Kim Bo. If you are interested in more upscale (but still a great value) Vietnamese, check out Ha Long Bay on Eglinton - lunch bahn mi + soup + fall roll = win.
Huge fan of Anh Dao! The pho broth is amazingly flavourful. I also love their rice paper wraps, bun and this starter they call "vietnamese spaghetti". It's essentially udon-type noodle with meat and vegetable, coconut milk and fish sauce. Be sure to try it should you visit.
Kim Bo is not as good in my opinion, not as authentic. Been to the Richmond Hill Times Square location.
Anh Dao is my go-to for pho. The broth has are really nice depth of flavour and the noodles are cooked perfectly (not too hard or soft). The rice paper rolls with grilled meats are really good too.
