Dot Com Pho – Fine Dining Edition

Normally, when you think of Pho, you don’t think of fine dining. All that changed this week when Alessandra and Jean-Francis of Provence Restaurants joined us for Dot Com Pho. It’s not everyday that you get to have lunch with a pair of local celebrity chefs. Add in the attendance of Aaron Koo and it meant that half the table at this week’s meetup were chefs.

As you no doubt guessed, most of the discussions centered around food, restaurants and fine dining. However, we did managed to get in a few other topics and even had time to show off two gadgets of the week. If you’re ever in Vancouver and want to sample two of the best fine dining restaurants in the city, check out Alessandra and Jean-Francis’ two Provence restaurants. I’ve dined there many times and have never been disappointed.

      That was me. If you’ve watched previous episodes of Dot Com Pho, it’s usually me doing the gadgets of the week. I’m a freelance writer and I review quite a bit of tech and gadgets as part of my work with my various clients (like and mentioned in this video). I review some stuff on my own blog from time to time too at

    Fine dining makes me feel I’m rich. Thanks for sharing this opportunity. By the way, I found a food social networking site that has so much to offer to its food loving members. It even has iPhone/iPad application for food enthusiasts like us.
