Looking Pho A New Standard

2006_7_11phohung.jpgWe’re going to hide under our desks because of that headline. A friend and pho-aficianado recently told us that Pho Hung raised their prices yet again. Since we’ve moved to Toronto Pho Hung has been a measuring stick by which we’ve measured all other pho places. The portions are well-sized, the food was tasty and until recently the prices have been quite cheap. But success seems to have gotten to the management at Pho Hung and with plenty of other options we’re now on the search for a new place to get our Vietnamese fix. In the running so far are Pho 88 (270 Spadina), The Golden Turtle (125 Ossington), and Xe Lua (254 Spadina). The deal breaker for us is whether a place skimps on fresh thai basil, we love that stuff.
