Dot Com Pho – Triple A Beef Edition

After taking a week off, Dot Com Pho is back and back at Pho Richmond. Located in the Continental Plaza, Pho Richmond is the only Pho restaurant in the Greater Vancouver area that serves Triple A Beef Pho.

Joining Sarah and me for the Triple A edition of Dot Com Pho were Ed Lau, Wolfgang, Ray and new comers Robert Klein and Heather from Boating In Beautiful British Columbia. Heather also brought the gadget of the week.

Thanks go out to Market Leverage for supplying “I’m Blogging This” T-Shirts to everyone who attended. Highlights from this week’s Dot Com Pho include taking X Shots, losing $280,000, Yahoo’s many epic fails, Twitter shoutouts and geek drinking games. Enjoy!

    Wish I was there to join in on the discussion. I have never been to a Pho restaurant before and would love to try it.

    grr why did i have to be at work to miss my chance for a twitter shoutout

  4. That was great John! I really enjoyed lunch with you all.

    BTW, I was a Pho-virgin, but the Triple A Beef was very good – especially with a dash of chili sauce 🙂

    Hope to see you again soon.

    Looks like it was a lot of fun! I love Pho! We don’t have any Pho restaurants around where I live now. Sometimes you just need a big deep bowl of rare beef pho. or a Bun Mai for lunch. You’re making me hungry and I just ate! Great post, again, looked like fun!

  6. What is pho? What am I missing here?

    1. pheakt says:

      pho is vietnamese noodle soup, its good you should try it once, maybe john can treat you next time he goes..

      the best part of the video is the iphone drinking game hahaha

    I love pho, and there are many Vietnamese restaurants where I live. I tend to pour so much chili sauce that the soup turns totally red. Just my preference… pho is fantastic….

    Guys, Thanks for the shout out!!!

    Pho Richmond is the most Cantonese Pho Restaurant in the Lower Mainland…and it’s quite possible that the AAA Beef is reclaimed from the Korean US Beef ban earlier in the year. Afterall, my people did switch a little girl out of her Olympic glory because she wasn’t cute enough.

    I hope you guys are alive tomorrow 😆

      We lived the last time. Don’t expect this time to be any different. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. 😛

      1. Ed Lau says:

        Actually, I’ve been feeling slightly sick all day…

    @ pheakt: yeah, this is a famous food from Vietnam.
    Welcome to Vietnam with a lot of wonderful things.

    John, thank for your post and have a nice weekend !

    Hope see you in Vietnam !

    Too bad I couldn’t send you the Edmonton footage in time for inclusion. I’ll mash together a video for posting on Beyond the Rhetoric tomorrow.

    A couple of general comments about this episode. John, you’re not “trying the beef” to see if it’s AAA, since we already went there a couple months ago. 🙂 Ironically, the gadget of the week is nearly identical to the one from that episode too.

  12. BenSpark says:

    Another nice video. Great to see Heather caught up with you for a Dot Com Pho. Also thanks for picking the XShot 2.0 for the gadget of the week. I hope that you have been enjoying using yours.

  13. Allan says:

    I love Pho! We have alot of Pho restaurants where I live too.

  14. wow cool
    hope i was there 😀

  15. John W says:

    I don’t think I see any jalapenos or basil in there and maybe no Cilantro

  16. Jeez that video is making me hungry

    1. No kidding, the food looks great! Maybe I’ll get out there one day.

    Since I’m pretty late on commenting, I’m going to say I see Robert’s crooked glasses (my ears are crooked too 🙂 ) and Heather’s right eye twitches 😛 . As for the iPhone Beer thing…wow…just wow…
