Dot Com Pho – Who Gives A Hoot Edition

After taking a few weeks off trying everything but real Pho, Dot Com Pho is back to classic Vietnamese beef noodle soup. For this meet up, Stephen Fung and I were joined by unemployed ex-radio personality, Buzz Bishop, and profession student Ed Lau, who was late as usual.

Dot Com Pho was filmed at Pho Vancouver on Main Street and King Edward. We’ve nicknamed the place Happy Pho because the owner, Brian, is the happiest restaurant owner we’ve ever met. 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 this edition of Dot Com Pho we have Buzz’s new start up, Dad CAMP, Why Ed is always late, the gadget of the week, geeks are sexy, a preview of Hootsuite for iPhone and a whole lot more.

    That’s look great. Atlast! something delicious yet health-looking food. ^-^

    1. Stephen says:

      Yes. A carmelized Banana Split with all the toppings is very healthy. I felt a sense of well being after eating it.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        Well, I’m not certain it’s really healthy… you know sometimes the soup is too much salty or oily… but it sures is more healthy than eating a burger king or other junk food.

        1. nathan says:

          This is more healthier compared to big burgers that was featured a couple of days ago.

          Well, if we can’t resist eating some delicious foods once in a while, we can still put additional exercises in our daily routine.

          1. Benjamin Cip says:

            You’re totally right Nathan. By just seeing the food in this video… I just can’t resit but want to eat everything! It made me very hungry, how about you?

        2. I heard it somewhere its more healthy food than the stuff you are referring above.

    2. Ed Lau says:

      …were you watching the same #%&*ing video?

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

  3. Benjamin Cip says:

    I really like vietnamese food as well as other asian food… but I can’t deny that I also like American Junk Food such as Kentaky’s and MCdonald’s.

    1. nathan says:

      I love asian foods more especially the different kind of noodles. I love ramen the best!

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        Actually, I like asian food. Especially Chinese, Japanese and Korean food such as Gyoza, Ramen, Kimchi, tenpura, sukiyaki, spring roll and so on… Do you like the ramen called “tan tan men”? I’m not sure you know this because I ate it in Japan, but maybe you’ve already tried it… well, I really like it!

      2. asian Food are more spice , come home to India, and taste it.

        1. Benjamin Cip says:

          Hey Shanker, I do really like Indian Food. At least Pakistanese food… I’m not sure if it’s similar to indian food, but it was quite teasty! I’ll sure come and have a lunch with you in India if you ever invit me? πŸ˜€

        2. nathan says:

          I’ve tried some Indian foods and it tasted so spicy but great! Just have to drink a lot of water while eating it.

          1. Plenty of water during food can effect your digestion.

            You will find tremendous different tastes in Indian food. Every state of India have different taste. Like in South India you can taste Dosa or Idly … and in North you can try Mutter Paneer or Butter Paneer.

            In east Sweets are more famous with the name of Rossogola and fish curry are delicious.

            You will surprised to see that in India there are so many different varieties.

  4. Volksphone says:

    1. Just go through some posts of John and you will find so many good place to have lunch.

  7. Benjamin Cip says:

    Hey John, if I ever go to Vancouver, could you take me to your best asian restaurant there? lol just kidding. I’ll take note of each restaurant you mentioned in your blog and visit the one that looks the best for me.

  8. Diabetis says:

    1. Go to your kitchen and made … please make it two I will join you too.

  14. Pho or whatever, its a reality that after sometime things gets back to basics.

  15. While we’re on the subject of eastern cuisine, I’d like to add my spicy comments too. Indian food really does it for me, with tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala being my favourites. Then do not even get me started with Sushi, as I can consume the stuff like nothing else. Nom, nom, nom…..

    1. Volksphone says:

      YouΒ΄re so right. Sushi is the best. I make it by my own it is not so good if I go to a sushi house but it tastes great. And cooking or sushi making is a nice evening event when you did this with friends πŸ˜‰

  16. Great editing on the video. Loved the iPod Nano demonstration, as I haven’t seen it live yet. And Yeah, Geeks Are Sexy, so kudos for the shirt! πŸ™‚
