Pho in France

Two weeks of vacation can sometimes make me feel some sick. But it was not me this time. The closest thing to soup noodle that was around our hotel was Pho 20. HA! My brother wanted to try it and I was like why not. Eating non French food in France isn’t a crime. But he thought it was sketchy..well the area that our hotel was located in was basically sketchy.

Forgot what we ordered, but basically noodle soup and spring rolls. Click here to find out more about Pho 20.

I know it may seem like nothing to the actual ‘pho’ out there, but it’s the best my mom makes AND I love it! Although it takes more time cooking time, sometimes I could use a change of noodles instead of having rice for dinner.

Pho 88

Never gets old. I’ve been in and out of this restaurant since grade 9, so about 7/8 years ago. I know, it DOES seem like a long time…though time flies and it seems like yesterday I just entered my first year of high school. Whenever Dennis and I have a hard time deciding what and where to go for dinner, we always end up going here. We both went to the same high school, which is a 5-10 minute walk, and for me…many memories made here. I probably can think of 10 different friends from the same high school as me, going here since I knew that this restaurant existed.

From talking about school teachers to boyfriends to gossip, this IS the place to do it ALL.

One time, my cousin, A, took me out for lunch. And we couldn’t decide on where or what to eat. We both said “Pho 88” and started laughing together as we both wanted the famous durian drink from Pho 88.

Dennis and I both categorize this restaurant as ‘fast food.’ Almost 95% of the customers already know what they want and don’t even bother with the menu.

Dennis calls it ‘shady.’

We usually order 101 or 102 (pho noodles with everything, L or xL), but we decided to try something new. Spicy satay beef. Was really SPICY!
IMG_4518Dennis tried coconut and peanut pho noodles.

Conclusion: we will stick with the most popular dish, 101 or 1o2 on the menu.

P.S. I was told ‘pho’ is pronounced as “ph-u’
