The Pho Files: Pho Tai at Maki Maki

I absolutely had to try the pho at Maki Maki. I was extremely curious to discover how good the pho was, at a restaurant that also serves Japanese food in addition to Vietnamese.

My pho was choice was pho tai, rare steak in beef broth. I was presented with a huge bowl filled with noodles and slices of steak, just turning brown from the heat of the broth. The meat was tender while the broth had a good depth of flavour to it - excellent seasonings.

At around $10 a bowl, the pho on Maki Maki's menu is amongst the most affordable choices there, and in line with the cost of pho elsewhere. If you are on Whyte Avenue, Maki Maki is definitely a great place to go for pho.
