Whyte Avenue’s Pho Boy, for sure.

Fan of Pho? You’re going to like Pho Boy, a little Vietnamese restaurant in the old B’s Diner on Whyte Ave.

The menu is concise with a half dozen appetizers, a couple of noodle bowls and a two soups plus the option to build your own. The pho broth has depth, the meat additions are of generous portion, and the rest of the menu delightfully interesting. Do not pass up on the Legend Rolls.

For pictures of what I ate, scroll, and to listen to the on-air review with Mark Connolly, or read my CBC web article.
