Restaurant Nam Quan

I'm surprised my search for Nam Quan didn't give any results here. Hope I wrote the name correctly. I will be brief about that PHO restaurant on jarry street. If we talk just about the PHO, it's probably the best Vietnamese soup I ever had in Montreal. I enjoyed it more than Pho lien on CDN and Pho Lien is a great soup. Generous portions and a broth that was just amazing. See photo

  1. Hi, Five!

    Whereabouts is it on Jarry? Assume it is between Parc and Acadie. Cross street?

    That Pho looks very good - any other memorable dishes?

      no it's further east between st-Michel and Pie-Ix. Across the street from Jean-Talon Pieces Auto.

    2. Can you get PHO without cilantro or any trace of it in the PHO or is it all in the soup from the start?

        Most pho broths are made with coriander seeds(though the seeds don't really taste like the herb). Some places use the stems in the stock, so I guess you have to ask.
