Pho is, without a doubt, one of the tastiest of all the soupy dishes and since it’s getting colder, we are craving us some steamy, warming-from-the-inside-out goodness.
Luckily, on the Gold Coast, there are a few spots you can grab yourself some of the very best Pho there is.
From north to south, here they are.
Can Tho Kitchen
This Runaway Bay eatery can go toe-to-toe with some of the more luxurious asian restaurants when it comes to flavour, but as far as cost, its nearly half the price. It’s a pretty cool spot and fills up, so you may wanna make a reservation to get yo Pho on.
Where: 5/465 Oxley Drive, Runaway Bay
New Saigon Restaurant
A local’s favourite, their loyal customers have been raving about the Pho at New Saigon for years. It’s a no frills little space next to the fire station but their food is unforgettable and you should absolutely get there ASAP.
Where: 2798 Gold Coast Highway, Surfers Paradise
Eddy + Wolff
The little Robina sister of Can Tho Kitchen is Eddy + Wolff, tucked away in suburbia offering some of the very best Asian eats around. Of course, their Pho is next-level, the baby dish of Can Tho’s famous one and it’ll warm you all the way to your bones.
Where: 12/217 Ron Penhaligon Way, Robina
Known for their ‘deal of the day’ promotions, on Wednesday’s the guys at Aprés Surf whip up a batch of PHO that’s so good, if you didn’t know any better you would swear they had an old Vietnamese lady in the kitchen. At only $10 a bowl these soup slingers are treating our tummies and our wallets.
Where: 2376 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach
My Saigon Tuckshop
One of Burleigh’s many hidden gems, this dynamite traditional Vietnamese Pho spot off of Taree St. serves up a mean bowl of Pho. Every dish is made to order, which makes it well worth the drive to industrial Burleigh. There are a few tables, but it’s better suited for grab and go. Eat it at home where pants are optional.
Where: 1/45 Taree Street Burleigh Heads
