Pretty Good Pho
Submitted Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 11:00am [Dine in]

I go here maybe once or twice a month when I get a hankering for pho. The interior walls are made with a warm wood panelling, but you can tell their forte is not interior decorating. The service is pretty quick, but the servers do not seem to like to get too involved in any kind of conversation. For example: "Could we have a box to take the rest of this salad roll with us?" was a little too personal (we had to stop them from making us a new salad roll for take away, and gesture very emphatically before we finally got an empty box), but if you need an extra bowl, they provide you with one fairly swiftly.

The food is really decent. I have tried about three or four of their soups and the meat has always been very fresh and tender, and the broth has been really good. I would say I have had consistently delicious food here.

The place is usually never too crowded, but there is a steady stream of customers, so that you get the impression that people like the place. It's never been really noisy when we have gone there. When you want to pay for your food, it's best to go up to the register, smile and say "Hi" to the closest server; the bill paying progresses fairly smoothly after that. Just don't rush them; they move in their own time...

Kitsch and Cool/Best Sausage Ever
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 11:37am [Dine in]

My wife and I went here on a Saturday, just before noon so it was not crowded. The space is kind of narrow and long, with a prominent bar, dark furniture, old wood, and modestly decorated. There was a perfect spot by the frontage window where there were couches and low tables; perfect for people watching while enjoying a beer. What really sold me on the place was that they had a screen in the back playing Rocky & Bullwinkle, and there was really fun music playing (older rockabilly, pop, 60-70's feel).

The staff was extremely friendly. They behaved as though they were happy to be there, rather than happy to be off in two hours. They even joked around with us in a way that did not seem forced. They did not, however, crowd us or make us feel like we were under scrutiny, so we still had a feeling of privacy.

The food? I have never had a sausage that amazingly delicious in my life. They have different kinds with very unique flavours. My wife had a Thai inspired sausage (incredibly good), while I had a "Sweet Italian" with fennel seeds and roasted bell pepper. Delicious!! A really fair size, not too messy on a toasted bun (made of good bread, not that overly sweet, sticky bread you get from Safeway).

I would definitely recommend this place for a sausage and beer. Prices are very reasonable, food is fantastic!
