The Best Pho in Toronto

Posted by Liora Ipsum / October 17, 2014

Pho TorontoThe best pho in Toronto will fill you up and warm you from the inside out. Whether topped with rosy, paper-thin sliced meats, luscious tripe and tendons, or floating meatballs, these steaming bowls of Vietnamese noodle soup can incite divisive allegiances and fierce debates amongst pho enthusiasts.

For me, what sets one bowl apart from another comes down to the quality of the broth. It should be almost clear - not murky - and imparted with complex flavours developed through hours-long simmering, then perked up with a little fish sauce at the end. The finishing touch: A selection of DIY additions including vibrant herbs, sprouts and chilis.

Here are the best bowls of pho in Toronto.
