Dot Com Pho – Pho Viet Edition

For this week’s Dot Com Pho, we headed to Pho Viet in Richmond. Pho Viet is the first Pho restaurant to open in Richmond. For nearly two years, they were the only place you can go to for a bowl of Pho. Now a days, Pho Viet has a lot of competition from other Pho restaurants but they can still create a line up on a busy Saturday afternoon.

Pho Viet is the only Pho restaurant in the Lower Mainland to give you the definition of Pho on their window. It reads, “Pho means you’ll get a delicious wholesome meal in a bowl at a reasonable price.”

For the Pho Viet edition of Dot Com Pho, we have National PHOlanthropy Day, Pho menu #1, Ice Coffee failure, the gadget of the week, Twitter shout outs, the world coming to an end and a whole lot more. Next week, Dot Com Pho will be returning to Pho Lan. See you there!

    Greg, who wants to be a real boy some day, fails at holding a video camera. Haha. His portion is so shaky and he’s got his finger on the lens for a good chunk of it.

  6. tracy says:

    There was only 1 pho place in Richmond for years?
    I should have opened one!

    Pho #1 is like a burger with everything on it.
    And the really big bowl is called “The Train”
    Can’t believe you guys dare to eat tendon and tripe!

    1. Stephen says:

      It’s more like an EATMORE bar, consisting of everything that fell down or around the counter, scooped up, and called a “House Special”. Takes more than that to kill me πŸ˜†

  7. Thats interesting, how frequently do you visit?

  8. Missed it again. Stupid military stuff pulling me away!

  9. Diana Rupert says:

  10. Hi John,

  12. ATX says:

    Similar trend here in Denver; few/no options a couple years ago, but lots of options today.

  13. Where is the the store?

  14. Mike Huang says:

    The more TENDON, the merrier πŸ˜€


  15. mohan says:

    I Wonder where is that store

  16. BusinessX says:

    These Pho videos have been a highlight of my weeks when available. Since the arcade post, have been running through shoutouts every time. It is a good way to get a snapshot of what’s happening.

  17. Sounds like a nice meal. We have a lot of Vietnamese restaurants here in Australia, and the food they serve is allways of great quality.

  18. Taris J says:

    I’ve definitely become a fan of Pho lately!! πŸ™‚

  19. hey, i’m still waiting to figure out where you list the restaurant you go next.
    i love pho and want to go and check you guys out.
    i am selling water filters and need help to take this to to the internet.

  20. Li Weng says:

    It’s interesting. I’m in Melbourne and there is a suburb called Richmond, where there’s a street full of vietnamese shops and restaurants. I take it your Richmond’s the one in Canada.

  21. Excellent idea! Pho is so so so so good!
