Delicious Pho Coquitlam Centre is my go to place for Vietnamese Pho Noodles. High ceilings and ample table and booth seats. There is a free parkade behind the building. There are also plenty of street parking. Delicious Pho is right beside Browns Social House and Legend House 天府 behind Coquitlam Centre. The staff are friendly and the food is prompt.
We usually like to order a combination of soup noodle with a rice plate or vermicelli bowl to share. The portions are generous and the plates are huge. Soup broth is always piping hot. Although the flavors are not the most complex, it is not very oily. It is a great place if you are looking for a quick fix or when you really don’t feel like cooking.
Lemongrass grilled pork and fried egg rice: Nice portion of marinated meat with sunny side egg, pickled vegetables, greens and broken rice. Served with side of fish sauce.
Fried Chicken Wings: On the menu it says fried bananas. We always laugh with the staff about this typo. The wings are lightly breaded and served with center wing and drum stick.
Bo Bun Hue: A rather oily spicy beef soup and really doesn’t compare to the clean but flavorful complex broth from Mr. Red Cafe. A nice variety of beef balls and beef shank slices.
Overall not bad for a quick pho meal. Delicious Pho is a lot cleaner and tastier than most other pho restaurants in Coquitlam. There really isn’t anything bad to say about this place. I certainly have been back many times.

Mr. Red Cafe is a recently opened Vietnamese restaurant on Hastings (Sunrise neighborhood). Unlike many pho restaurants in Vancouver, Mr Red Cafe offers traditional Northern Vietnamese cuisine. Owner Rose tells us that they value authentic traditional flavors. Their broth is MSG free and flavors are built by heat and bones. They make three different stocks daily from scratch everyday. Instead of the atypical hoisin sauce, they steep their own rice vinegar with tons of chili and garlic. We soon noticed the subtle differences as we began with some Pandan jasmine tea. Banh Bot Loc La Chuoi 6.00: Vietnamese steamed pork and shrimp tapioca dumplings wrapped in banana leaf. The steamed dumplings were fragrant from the banana leaves. Light tasting and some bite from the pork and shrimp filling. Dash some chili garlic rice vinegar to taste. Bun Bo Hue 8.00: Hue style combination of well done beef, sliced pork, beef balls, pork blood, pork feet with spicy soup. Light clear broth that is spicy but not over-powering. It is very fragrant. I think aside from Pho Tam in Surrey. This could very well be my second best bun bo hue in Vancouver. Bun Nem Cua Be 10.50: Deep fried crab meat spring rolls. The best crab meat spring rolls with vermicelli, mixed herbs, and sweet and sour fish sauce on the side. You have to taste it for yourself. There are so many more things we really wanted to order. There is not enough time and never enough room in our stomach. We love chatting with Rose and her listen to her stories about her husband Hong. Mr Red Cafe makes everything in house – ie. spicy pate used for Spicy Pate Sandwich. See you next week Rose. I have a feeling we will see you lots!

We were greeted one evening by a bitter cold winter evening in Vancouver. The nearby restaurants were packed and have no tables available. It were grateful for a hot bowl of pho at Joyeaux Cafe Vancouver on Howe Street. The service here is prompt and pretty […]
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 […]
Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant is one of the best Viet restaurants in Vancouver? Their special Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot is a meat feast? How could you not have heard of this restaurant? I must have been living in a well because I really haven’t heard of it until now.
We arrived at Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant, just north of East 1st Ave / Nanaimo. The interior is date with a beach-tikki-tropical vibe punctuated with lime green, fake plastic leave and branches hanging from the ceiling with dim lighting. The menus mirrored the same design and I was afraid I would even to turn green.
But despite the poor “décor” this restaurant offers a lot. Special dishes like tapioca dumplings and of course the aforementioned Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot. Beware, it’s like having a meat feast. It is actually more than enough for 2 people.
Bun Ga Cha Gio – Lemongrass chicken and spring rolls vermicelli noodles: It is not de-boned chicken breast / thighs. These are actual chicken pieces with some occasional broken bones. It is nicely seasoned and grilled. The spring rolls has a nice filled and lightly fried.
Bun Bo Hue – Pig knuckles, Vietnamese ham, beef shanks, congealed pig blood and served with shredded purple cabbage. The soup base was on the lighter side and definitely not spicy enough. We much prefer the hearty bowl at Pho Tan instead.
Banh Bot Loc Tom Thit Goi La Chuoi – Tapioca dumplings with minced meat and shrimp steamed with banana leaf: A chewy texture with seasoned minced meat inside. A side of fish sauce punctuated with chilies and garlic was exciting. However, often found bites of bones? Or broken ceramic? inside. I really hope I was the only unlucky one. Could you imagine swallowing it or biting onto it? Hello Dental Plan!!
Anyways, I’m sure I’ll be back for the Beef 7 ways and Oxtail Hotpot… I’ll just be careful not to bite off more than I can chew!

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 & […]
Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant… Try the pho once and you will be hooked. Try the rice a second time and will so happy you may want to cry. Le Do is a couple of shops down from Red Wagon and puts up a fierce competition with Bao Chau. Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant is a great Vietnamese restaurant providing you great meals, hearty portions at reasonable prices while uncompromising flavour.
Dry Vietnamese Vermicelli with spring rolls and pasted pork brochette (sausage). Crunchy and flaky spring rolls with a nice minced pork filling. The sausage is grilled on the skewer and sprinkled with crushed peanuts. Usual garnishes of pickled carrots and radish to accompany. Mix in the chili oil and pour in the fish sauce completes this dish.
The rice comes with a side water diluted soup of pork hock. It feels like Knoor’s chicken essence powder mixed with hot water.
Now the star of the show – broken rice. Le Do Vietnamese Restaurant has the best broken rice in Vancouver. This lemongrass grilled chicken is delicious! The rice is dry, not mushy and fragrant. Shredded fried onions add a layer of depth and flavours. Add an egg so the yolk runs onto your rice. Smother it. Mix it. Indulge in the creamy goodness.
Their minced pork and Egg Foo Yung is wonderful and it doesn’t have to be the unattractive Chinese-American/Canadian restaurant version that’s covered in gloppy brown sauce. It can be refined and neatly presented in a rectangle cake.
And last but not least. Always check out their drink menu. Their drinks can be like a liquid dessert. Heavy coconut milk, red beans, jelly and egg white! Heavenly – Even in an unattractive little restaurant!
