5 places to get your Pho fix

Pho real, what’s Pho dinner?

What makes Pho so good?

Is it the steamy broth? Crispy veggies dancing around the tender meat? How about those long noodles that make the little slurping noise as they pass through your lips?

Maybe it’s the chilly nights that have us hankerin for a big steamy bowl, or maybe it’s because they’re just so damn good.

Here’s where to grab a bowl of noodle heaven.

1. 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.

1/45 Taree Street Burleigh Heads – Only open Mon, Tues & Wednesday, but you can find them at the Currumbin Markets. Just look for the line!

2. 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.

5/465 Oxley Drive, Runaway Bay

3. O-Me-Ly

In the heart of Broadbeach lies a little hole in the wall Vietnamese restaurant that serves home style Vietnamese cooking. The authentic dishes are packed with flavour, and are oozing with deliciousness, O-Me-Ly will have you coming back Pho sho! It’s also one of our Editors top picks!

15-24 Queensland Ave, Broadbeach

4. New Saigon Restaurant

No frills just damn good Pho. A local’s favourite, their loyal customers have been raving about the Pho at New Saigon for years. We’ve even been told that the pho is “to die for”. If you are new to New Saigon it’s located in the beautiful white house with next to the fire station on the Gold Coast Highway.

5. Aprés Surf

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.
