Where to buy bowls for pho?


I am making pho for the first time and would like to know where I could buy some large pho bowls.
Since they'll be used only occasionally, am looking to spend as little as possible.
Will travel to get them but the closer to CDN the better.

  1. Chinatown! They have some pretty nice ones.

    1. In CDN, try Kim Phat on Goyer near CDN. I've only been to the one on Jarry, but it has pho bowls, and I imagine that the CDN location would as well. About the same prices as in Chinatown.

      Kim Phat – Goyer
      3588 Rue Goyer,
      Montreal, Quebec H3S 1J1

      Tel: 514-737-2383
      Fax: 514-342-5618

        There's also Fu Tai in Plaza Côte-de-Neiges that has a pretty decent kitchen section.

      2. If spending as little as possible is key, check out el cheapo plastico bowls at Dollorama.

          Little known fact: El cheapo plastico is the house brand of Mexico's Pesorama stores.

        2. Not exactly pho bowls, but in Chinatown, you can find these oversized chinese rice bowlls for very very cheap.

          1. I got some in Chinatown for about $4 each and they are ceramic. I wouldn't buy plastic bowls if you can help it as big noodle soup bowls are always handy for little salads and other things. And if you make your pho well you'll probably end up using them more often than you think.
