There’s an ongoing debate amongst pho enthusiasts about where to get the best bowl in the city, with everyone swearing by their own personal favourites. For us, a great bowl of pho is all about the broth first and foremost. It should be crystal clear and aromatic; playing host to a variety of complex spices and flavours developed through a lengthy simmer. The finishing touch is a delicious tender meat with fresh herbs and vegetables to top it all off. Here’s a roundup of the best pho restaurants in Brampton.
PHO BO SAIGON
Pho Bo Saigon serves up a mean bowl of pho; tender noodles with an aromatic broth and deliciously tender meat. The pho with rare beef or beef balls is pretty on point. Whether you’re dining in or taking out service will be snappy and the large portions are worth the price. Try the spicy Bun Bo Hue (Spicy vimacelli with beef), if you love a little kick, you’ll love this.

SAIGON HO– USE
With two locations in the city, regulars swear by the pho here. SH boasts a broth that is simply one of the best in the city, with well-constructed noodles to boot. Round it all up with tender meats and fresh toppings to accompany, and you’ve got all you need at Saigon house. If you’re going with a group, not a problem, their dining room is spacious.

PHO VIET NAM
This little downtown Vietnamese spot is a reliable choice for chicken and a beef pho. The next time you’re feeling under the weather, skip the chicken noodle soup and grab some of their pho ga. It’s a cozy space so if you have to opt for take-out you’ll appreciate their fast, friendly service.

Don’t underestimate this cozy spot, it packs a busy lunch crowd on weekends, but that’s because their broth is just what it ought to be. The Spicy Bun Bo Hue is great if you want something with kick, and the ever-reliable beef pho is a great option also. Whether you’re eating in or taking out, expect great food.
