Phở Tây Hồ

$$$$(514) 273-5627
Hours:SUN
3PM-8:30PM

Montrealers are an opinionated bunch: specifically about bagels and phở (also about which hockey players should be playing for the Canadiens, but that’s another story). Phở Tây Hồ is known for their long-simmered chicken broth and special Hanoi-style flavor mix, with just the right amount of cinnamon, cardamom, and star anise in the aromatics. You can find that broth for lunch or dinner at this informal spot, where the bowls are big enough to share. We usually start off with a super-fresh gỏi cuốn rice roll with shrimp and move on to phở or the equally wonderful tomato- and crab-filled bún riêu.

Mokili

Mokili in Villeray is a perfect place to sit at the counter, enjoy some Ghanian plantains, and chat with the chef.
