Best Pho in Seattle | Best Vietnamese Restaurants Seattle
Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant | 1684 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC V8W 2G5 | (250) 590-8302 | http://greenleaftaste.com/
If you are looking for a Vietnamese restaurants with something more than just a bowl of Pho, than Green Leaf will soon become your old favorite. The restaurant is tiny and perhaps underwhelming, but they sure make a mean Banh Xeo savoury crepe stuffed with shrimp. If you are tired from pho noodles, Green Leaf has a good Hu Tieu My Tho clear vermicelli noodles option with a clear pork rib broth, seafood and minced pork.
Ba Bar | 550 12th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, United States | +1 206-328-2030 | http://babarseattle.com/ |
The broth from bone marrow and knucklebones at Ba Bar is clear but powerful. The menus has meaty ingredients and a variety of classic Vietnamese dishes. Be sure to try their crafted cocktails like the Moscow Mule and fresh baked pastries. Ba Bar even has macarons, pate chaud to pineapple upsidedown cakes and housemade jams to go. No wonder Ba Bar is open late night until 4am on Friday and Saturdays.
When you see the same dish on every table, you order that dish. Bun Bo Hue is what Hoang Lan specializes in. And a damn job it does. The bowl is filled with pork hock, congealed pork blood, thinly sliced beef. The complex broth has a secret ingredient of fresh pineapples to lend the sweet acidity flavor profiles. And remember, Cash Only.
Hue Ky Mi Gia | 1207 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98144, United States | +1 206-568-1268 | http://huekymigia.com/menu |
One of the most amazing garlic butter chicken wings. Lightly batter and flash fried with minced garlic, white onions, and green onions. Crunchy and shatters with each bite for a juicy meat center. This Chinese – Vietnamese restaurant also offers braised duck noodle soup marinated with Chinese herbs and spices. Faux pho? No problem.
Pho on a boat. There is no menus except a sign on the wall that has a good selection of steak, fatty brisket, tripe and meatballs. The broth is pretty awesome too with a little sweetness. Always full of fresh herbs like basil and jalapenos. All for $8.

Friendly staff with minimal wait times. Order from crowd favorites like chicken wings with pepper sauce, egg rolls and a hot bowl of seafood pho. Generous amount of seafood in a light flavorful broth. Try the tofu spring rolls served with peanut sauce. Lightly seasoned and not too salty. Vegetarians, it’s all about options right?

Hard to beat an eight dollar deal with good quality meat and flavorful broth. Generous portions and piles of tender meat. Brisket! Tendon! Flank! Go ahead and drink all the soup, you won’t be thirsty! We love the Bun Bo Hue spicy beef Vietnamese round noodles here. We hope you do also.

Pho Tan Vietnamese 新記越南餐廳 | 4598 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V, (604) 873-3345

Pho Tam Surrey 歡心正宗越南牛肉粉 | 4598 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V, | (604) 873-3345

Last time I was in Hong Kong, I had to revisit Nha Trang Vietnamese Restaurant Hong Kong 芽莊越式料理. One of the things I love about Vietnamese cuisine is the vivid colors from the ingredients used. Greens from limes. Reds from chilies. Yellows from egg foo young. Etc. It seems Hong Kong is in need of a good bowl of pho; while here in Vancouver, we are in dire need of authentic Vietnamese Food.
Nha Trang has a wide variety of fancy Vietnamese dishes aside from salad rolls, skewers, noodles, grilled seafood, etc. Nha Trang Vietnamese Restaurant has a few locations around Hong Kong (Central Wellington Street, Tsim Sha Tsui Ocean Terminal, ShaTin New Town Plaza I). Maybe I am a bit of a tourist, but I prefer Harbour City Ocean Terminal because of the amazing view the city has to offer. If you are lucky, you may get the table overlooking the Hong Kong Cityline view.
CUA LOT CHIEN CUON 會安軟殼蟹卷 SOFT SHELL CRAB ROLLS 58: Crispy deep fried soft shell crab wrapped with herb salad in a roll. It is paired with crunchy cucumber. This medley of texture is delicious! I love the soft chewiness of the rice roll against the crispy crunchiness of the deep fried soft shell crab. Amazing!
GOI BO NUONG 燒牛柳沙津 GRILLED BEEF SALAD 80: Stir fried slices of marinated grilled beef, charred at their edges. Tossed with chopped cucumber, onion, tomato, chilli pepper and fresh herbs finished with a lemongrass, crushed peanut and lime dressing. This was a very flavorful dish with some heat, acidity and bite. The lime was bright with lemongrass, cilantro, and other herbs.
THIT BO/GA/TOM NUONG XA 香茅串燒 雞 / 牛 / 蝦 GRILLED LEMONGRASS CHICKEN / BEEF / PRAWN: It wasn’t easy to tell everyone to stop eating to let me take a picture. Good thing I am with family. The skewers are infused with lemongrass and a sweet marinate. A mild nutty satay dip is served on the side. The prawns were delicious. Chicken were tender. But the beef was on the chewy side.
BUN CHA CA 河內魚餅撈檬 COLD VERMICELLI BOWL WITH HANOI FISH CAKE: Minced fish cakes are popular Northern Vietnamese appetizers. The fish is minced and mixed with chopped fresh water chestnut and is seasoned with fresh dill. Served with fish sauce and cold vermicelli underneath. It is a refreshing dish amidst a lot of hot, spicy dishes.
BANH CUON 清沅蒸粉卷 VIETNAMESE STEAMED RICE RAVIOLI 65: Thin translucent rice-flour sheets wrap a filling of seasoned minced shrimp and pork steamed parcels. Once steamed, it is topped with deep-fried garlic flakes. All can be wrapped in accompanying crisp lettuce leaf and dipped in our house nuoc nam fish sauce. I’m really looking forward to try the Grilled Beef Wrapped in Pepper Leaves Bo La Lot made with marinated sliced beef grilled in pepper leaf and served with pickled plum and lime sauce.
GOI BUOI 邊和燒大蝦柚子沙律 POMELO AND GRILLED PRAWN SALAD 80: Two jumbo char-grilled prawns, peeled pomelo, shredded cucumber, sliced red onion, toasted cashew nut and black sesame seed, sprinkled with fried shallot and garlic flakes. The pomelo was not bitter and had just the right amount of citrus acidity and sweetness. Everything mixed together was so refreshing against the hot stuffiness lingering in air.
MUC NHOI THIT 香煎釀墨魚 PAN-SEARED STUFFED SQUID 78: Fresh young squid are filled with a pork, chopped squid, garlic and ginger stuffing before grilling. The squid is tender and not chewy. This is one of my favorite dishes from Nha Trang. I love the slightly charred grilled squid flavors.
COM TAM 越南碎米飯 BROKEN RICE PLATTER 70: I love myself a mean rice platter of broken rice. Broken Rice means grains that are not whole, but broken. The texture is less fluffy and a bit nutty. This a popular Southern Vietnamese rice dish and is usually served with barbecued meats and egg dishes. Nha Trang rice platter includes ground toasted rice, shredded pork, grilled lemongrass pork chop and steamed frittata egg foo young.
Have you found that perfect bowl of pho yet in Hong Kong? Please let me know. I’d like to try it on my next trip back.

Sometimes I wonder how true something self proclaimed is. The best noodle soup in town? Apparently this is true and there is a large fan base and general consensus that Pho Tam Surrey 歡心正宗越南牛肉粉 is not only the best pho in Surrey, but perhaps all of Metro Vancouver. […]
I’ve been on the road for awhile now, and being away from Vancouver (Lower Mainland) makes me crave and miss Asian food A LOT. When searching for the “best pho” in Kamloops or any Pho for that matter, my GPS brought me to Donut King & Coffee. What? Pho Viet Kamloops has good pho?
Inside it looks like your typical donut shop. Donuts, pastries, and your standard Double Double. This place had something else. A magical bowl of Pho Beef noodles 7.99. The soup was hot and wasn’t too bad. Very standard. Beef balls and sliced beef. Everything was pretty fresh.
Conceptually it is strange when the smell of pho contrasts with flour and sugar. Suppose this is why no matter how hard the owners tried to introduce a sweet combo of Bánh mì (Vietnamese Subs), coffee and donut for under $5 it never worked. What’s harder about keeping it all fresh was that the typical Bánh mì ingredients were not readily available in Kamloops. Such a shame. The Vietnamese owner was very pleasant to chat with!
