So, we’re hanging out at Pho Vistro, this funky little Vietnamese soup joint on Queen Street West. Now, I don’t usually eat soup, unless the only other option is salad, but this place is pretty legit. Their all-natural broth is cooked for 10 hours, and packed with more herbs and spices than the Colonel’s Original Recipe. You can get it with beef, chicken or vegan, or go for their signature Pho Vistro, which has beef AND chicken, for literally just a dollar more:
This pho totally reeks of deliciousness, bro! The broth is light and not too salty, which goes great with the noodles. You’ve got strips of both chicken and beef, along with some sprouts and some onions, for a little extra flavour. But what makes it is the beef short rib:
Where’s the beef!? It’s right here, bro!!!! This chunka-chunka burning rib is so tender, it comes right off the bone…although you still gotta bite it a bit. Kicking this dish up a notch with short rib will cost ya an extra two bucks, but since the soup’s only like 12 dollars to begin with, it’s an upgrade that’s totally worth it!
