So Pho, So Good

1. Pho4U

For all my Muslim foodies out there, you know what I’m talking about. Pho4U is one of our favourite places to have halal pho that doesn’t compromise on it’s authenticity.

The broth is light and beef slices are so tender, you can’t help but want to order another bowl.

At just $8.50, you can get the basic pho which consists of half cooked steak and well done brisket. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, you can also get flank and meatballs in your pho.
