Dot Com Pho – Eat Like An Olympian Edition

We may not be able to skate or ski like an Olympian but we can certainly eat like one. And Pho Thai Hoa at 1625 Kingsway in Vancouver is a good a place as any to eat you heart out. With a totally revamped menu with extremely colorful photos, we were tempted left and right to try everything the restaurant had to offer.

Attending this week’s Pho get together were Ed Lau, Aaron Koo and myself. It seems everyone else was too tired from walking and lining up at Olympic events to wake up in time for Pho. What a bunch of wimps! At any rate, we still had a great time and filmed an awesome episode for you to enjoy.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho we have eat until you can’t eat no more, pig feet with hair, a soda made with a raw egg, MSG soup, a salad made with beef jerky, Vancouver 2010 for xBox 360 by Sega, win an Apple iPad, how to make the female Olympic curling teams sexier than they already are and my plan to buy out Vancouver after the Games.

  1. You guys are always eating! So have you been to any of the events yet John?

    1. Watch full video and you will get the answer that John to many events and one of them was ice hockey.

    2. When will Dot Com Pho become an Olympic event?

      1. Boy you are demanding too much …

  2. Ed Lau says:

    Weaklings! I’ve had barely two to three hours of sleep every day for a week and a half now and I’m still going strong! The Olympics make Vancouver extra awesome. You can sleep when they’re over!

      I’m the only one that eats like an Olympian. I get a bye by default kiddies.

      1. According to the commercials, McDonalds is where all of the Olympians eat.

        1. Yea right, Olympic athletes get their nutrition at McDonalds…sure

      2. John Chow says:

        We did say that if eating was an Olympic sport, you’ll win 9 medals!

        1. SEO Tools says:

          wow 9 medals for eating .. 😮

    2. you guys are lucky. but “pig feet with hair’ what the hell is that ?

      1. That one is showing the quality of food serve at there … lollzzz

      2. I would ask them to hold the hair.

  3. AdWooz says:

    Pig feet with hair probably yamy-yammy. Nice experience I think isn’t it?

    1. Aaron Koo says:

      Don’t knock it til you try it. I tried and thus I now have the right to knock it all I want. Which I’ll be doing in ample amounts.

      1. OINK! That is all I can say, ROFLMAO!!!! 🙂

  4. Michael Kwan says:

    Just because it’s the iPod doesn’t mean it’s the xBox. 😉

  5. Mathew Day says:

    That food looked delicious, except maybe the pigs feet with hair. I would’ve probably passed on that one. 🙂

    1. That one was really like yuck …

  6. Diabetis says:

    Wow, sure I would like to go there someday!

  7. Only three people … boy this one is really looking empty.

    But if you have Ed than you do not need anyone.

  8. Great ! looks delicious, hoping for a test taste then . :p

    1. Hair in pork sounding delicious to you. Interesting !!

  9. enjoy…have great fun…

  10. Mangalary says:

    Fun fun fun…soda with raw eggs is great especially mixing egg with “Royal Tru-Orange”.

    Pig feet is one of my favorite part. I don’t know why, but it tastes good and the texture of that stretchy feet tendons are chewy..yum!

  11. fas says:

    The place sounds too noisy, everyone is hungry it seems.

    1. Yes this one is really happening place.

  12. Heard this place has good food!

  13. Nick says:

    Great video! You’re always eating, John. The food looks delicious. Enjoy!

  14. Trotters are not my idea of fine dining, but then I am quasi-vegetarian myself, and any slightly exotic meat brings an immediate gag reflex on. Everyone to his own however, and thank you for sharing this dot com pho with us! Cheers!

  15. Alex says:

    lol you eat quite a lot of pho

  16. CNA training says:

    I completely missed the point. May be some joke specific to johnchow fans…I am going to read the blog end to end, so I am going to get it in 2 weeks max 🙂

  17. chester says:

    I’m open to eating almost anything but pig’s feed with hair just sounds plain wrong. Why not add some snout while you’re at it? The MSG soup sounds delish though!

  18. lunch box says:

    I’d watch eating as an Olympic sport over figure skating any day. (actually, maybe you should invite some of those skinny figure skaters to your next dot com pho….put a little weight on them)

  19. The egg soda doesn’t look too appetizing. My favorite drink at a pho place is called “soda chanh moi”. It’s made from picked (fermented) lemon, club soda, sugar and a little bit of salt. Just writing about it makes my mouth water already. Yummy.

    1. chester says:

      The egg soda is actually pretty good. You just have to get past the fact that it’s egg soda. That being said, I think their red bean drink rocks.

  20. MSG soup? Don’t you know that MSG will kill your brain cells?
