|Tran Cantine Why this place: One of the latest additions of St-Henri, Tran is a little Vietnamese Cantine offering a fun menu with very reasonable prices (thank god). I’ve been here a couple of times and every single one I’m always there for soups. Every single thing is homemade here, the broth, sauces and the entire menu. You’ll find appetizers like spring rolls, three options of Pho including chicken, rare beef and beef flank, and the popular Vietnamese sandwiches bahn mi (that I can’t wait try next time).What we had: Spring rolls to start, and two chicken Pho, for the heart.Located at 4690 Rue Notre Dame Ouest, open Monday to Saturday from 11:30am – 9pm|
|Nguyen PhiWhy this place: This is one of the most popular spots that’s been around in the city, and let’s be honest, this Pho deserves a Guinness record. You need to swim in their delish broth, full of flavour and rich in fresh ingredients like onions, ginger and a bit of cinnamon. You’ll have plenty of pho options in here, a total of 23 different “tonki” soups, including shrimp, pork, veggie or well done beef. Bonus track: They are extremely kids friendly and they have a kids menu, yay!What we had: veggie pho, chicken pho and their kids option of grilled chicken with rice.Located at 6260 Chemin de la Cote-des-Neiges, open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am – 8pm.|
|Pho LienWhy this place: this ultra crowded place in Cote-des-neiges was on my list since forever, and I spotted a quiet time to visit them and try their famous pho. Guys, the wait was absolutely worth it, at a point, I had to come back a week after for more. Keep in mind this place is for a quick stop, but be sure it’ll be one of your best stops ever. Noodles are “fait maison” and the staff is fun and kind to accommodate families like ours.What we had: Spring rolls (a must), Beef and chicken pho, their famous chicken grillade plate.Located at 5703 Chemin de la Cote-des-Neiges open Wednesday to Monday from 11am – 10pm|
|Craving for one, right now! don’t judge me.|
