During our stay in Montreal it was hard not to miss home cooked Asian meals. A bowl of noodles is in the order. One of the best things around Montreal was where we stayed, Hyatt Regency Montreal. It is dead center of downtown with accessible underground subways stations that lead from Complexe Deshardins, Place D’ Armes and Palce des Arts metro stations. A brisk walk underground leads us to Saint-Urbain and De La Gauchetière Street – the back roads of Montreal Chinatown (Le quartier chinois de Montréal 蒙特利爾唐人街). And shortly we found Pho Thanh Long Vietnamese Montreal.
Pho Bang New York Vietnamese was close by in Montreal Chinatown.
Chinatown in Montreal really isn’t too big and is much smaller than Vancouver’s. In fact, there are more Vietnamese Pho eateries than there are of wonton noodles. I heard lots of good things about the authenticity of the Pho noodles at Pho Thanh Long and we were super excited to try it.
The soup is tasty and not very oily, but the real winner was their Mong dry vermicelli noodles. Lots of chicken slices with prawns. There was a lot of ingredients and they didn’t skimp out. The spring rolls were tasty and wasn’t too oily. Added with some fish sauce mixed with chili oil really made our day!
There isn’t a lot of reviews on Urbanspoon nor Yelp. But if you ever check in with Foursquare you will see a lot of good word of mouth!
