Pho Cuu Long Restaurant – 757 St. Mary’s Road

Pho Cuu Long is a Vietnamese restaurant that is located on St. Mary’s Road just north of Fermor Avenue. This is a restaurant that I end up at because nothing else was open, or, if open, was really full of people. I like to take my chances when I choose a restaurant. Often I will walk down a busy street such as St. Mary’s Road and see what new-to-me place I can find. Usually this works out really well. However,…Continue readingPho Cuu Long Restaurant – 757 St. Mary’s Road

Pho 5-Star Vietnamese Eatery

Pho 5-Star Vietnamese Eatery is a new Vietnamese Restaurant in a location formerly occupied by a Vietnamese restaurant. The previous occupant was called Vietnam. The first thing I notice as I am walking in, is that the decor is completely changed. When the restaurant was Vietnam, it felt crowded. Pho 5-StarVietnamese Eatery is spacious. Perhaps the coronavirus is the cause, but the place seems to have slightly fewer tables. Gone also is the large screen TV that seemed always to…Continue readingPho 5-Star Vietnamese Eatery

Pho KIm Tuong is…Continue readingPho Kim Tuong Vietnamese Restaurant

Saigon Star Vietnamese Restaurant

One of the culinary features of the part of Winnipeg I live in, is it’s proliferation of Vietnamese restaurants. A quick check of Google Maps lists at least 18 within at most 12 blocks of my house. Some have been there for a very long time, and it seems that there are always new ones popping up. One such restaurant, that if not entirely new, (the restaurants in the area also move around from time to time), is Saigon Star,…Continue readingSaigon Star Vietnamese Restaurant

Pho Hoang Sargent Avenue

My original review was sparked by the renovations on Portage Avenue. Since I wrote the original, the Portage Avenue Pho Hoang location has opened. So, last night I went in to check it out. When you walk into the storefront location, one of the first things that grabs your eye is the number of seats that have been squeezed into the space. There are two short and one longish bar counters against the wall, along with tables for a couple…Continue readingPho Hoang Sargent Avenue
