Do yourself a favor, order the perogies and merguez sausages off the dinner menu. What seems like a meal easily prepared at home turns into a beautiful comfort food restaurant experience. You won't be disappointed. Especially good on one of these rainy november nights ! I've been here for breakfast many times but like everyone else here I'd rather not wait in line for an hour just for a huge plate with 3 pounds of hash browns on it.

If there's better pho elsewhere, i'd like to know where.

Thai Son is my new favorite place to get Pho. I too was a fan of Thang Long on Main before it closed down. Pho Hoa on Kingsway has always been an old standby, but in my humble opinion Thai Son has the edge. Very fresh sprouts and basil (the mark of a good pho place in my opinion), very nice lightly flavored broth, and decent serving sizes. The service is wonderfully efficient and genuinely friendly. This place is always busy but I've never waited for a seat. I should also mention that this place seems very popular with actual Vietnamese patrons, always a good sign. I've had the lemongrass chicken which was also good. I believe the food here is Vietnamese with a Thai angle on it. Plus they play Canucks games and are in the hood (Mount Pleasant). What's not to like?
