Pho Royal Restuarant @ 1855 Burrard Street
For those Kits folks, myself included, who want a good bowl of Pho without the commute, this is the place. It may not the best Pho in Vancouver… Far from it. But compared to your other options when you’d rather walk than drive, the food is good, the prices are reasonable and the couple that runs the restaurant is delightful.
My biggest pet-peeve with Pho is poor quality beef, but from my dozen or so experiences here, I am happy to report that the beef has always been good and the soup remarkably consistent. And as we all know, consistency seems to be a difficult feat for most local Vietnamese restaurants.
If you want outstanding Pho, head East. If you want a solid bowl of soup without leaving the neighbourhood, you will be pleasantly surprised here.
