Dot Com Pho – The First Pho of 2010 Edition

The first Dot Com Pho of 2010 was held at Pho Thai Hoa on world famous Kingsway in Vancouver. We have been to this award winning Pho restaurant before and knew that it would be an ideal location. I was expecting a full house for the first Pho of 2010 and I got one with ten people showing up. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location of the next one.

For the first Pho of 2010, we have Ed Lau explaining his TSA airport security experience (not fun), why vegetarians are wrong, New Year’s resolutions, Pho menu #29, the gadget of the week and a whole lot more. Our Pho meet ups are lasting longer and longer. We got there at 12:30 and and didn’t leave the restaurant until after 3PM. So if you want to join us for Pho but can’t make it by 12:30, don’t worry about showing up a little later because chances are, we will still be there.

    LOL so true Gary, Ed is a true Chinese because Chinese are the only people that eats anything that moves 🙂

    1. Including what not moves (veggie) as well … 🙂

        i wouldnt mind eating moving stuffs as long as its a little spicy and tastes good 🙂

      Health issues aside (I wouldn’t eat a rat or a regular variety pigeon, for example), I don’t see why some people simply won’t eat certain types of meat. I’d try anything at least once…I mean, the worst that could happen is that I don’t like it and I don’t eat it again.

      If someone brought me a mixed grill and said “Dude, this is made from narwall, leopard, baby ducks and unicorn.”, I’d scarf that bad boy down.

      I hope that doesn’t include steel objects as well.

    OMG I missed iPhone Gary


  8. fas says:

    This is by far the worst dot com pho I have seen, the quality is absolutely in the ditch, too much background noise and you just cant hear anything. Which camera did you use?

  9. Wow, quite the conversation during that lunch……even incorporated koala bears and penguins!

  10. Nick says:

    Wow … I love your digital camera, john!

    1. It’s pretty cool if I say so myself!

  11. George says:

    What better way to kick off the new year than Pho?

  12. Tikin says:

    Omg, you like Pho? So happy because I’m a Vietnamese. If you have a chance, you should try Bun Bo, it’s very good taste 🙂 (I can cook this thing!)
