PHO TAI by Quirkilicious PHO TAI by Quirkilicious
DISCLAIMER, THIS IS THE LAME STUFF I DO DURING MY FREE TIME. <3

I don't know about the rest of Canada but Vietnamese Noodle Restaurants (Pho) are very popular in Calgary! So about a year or two ago I thought "Hey, I wonder if there's a best from all these places?"

I ended up documenting my little escapades to find the best bowl of "Pho Tai" in the city, here's a total of 50 I've tried so far! (I'm not stopping, haha)

Those look good.

I think I may have seen a Vietnamese restaurant here in Halifax, but I'm not sure. Obviously they're not as popular here as they are out there.

I work in a Pho place in Edmonton, there are quite a few around here too I assure you. Ironically, I dislike eating soup, and have only once gotten Pho from my work.
