Calgaryism’s List of Best Vietnamese Pho Restaurants…Kensington Pho Restaurant Calgary

Have you ever tried a type of Vietnamese cuisine called Pho – as it is commonly called? If you have not, you are missing out!

Pho is a healthy, appetizing and authentic cuisine consisting of things like salad rolls, spring rolls, egg and vermicelli noodle dishes, noodle soup or Pho as it is called and much more!

Calgary has an abundance of these places including the following best Calgary pho restaurants:

Pho Chu ThePho Chu The Calgary Vietnamese Restaurant

Located around 46th Avenue and Macleod Trail SW, Phu Chu The serves up some of the best Vietnamese cuisine I’ve ever found along the main corridor. Serving sizes are always hefty and the food is succulent and delicious every time.

This place is a must try if you find yourself near Chinook Mall!

One of the best things about Co Do isn’t only its amazing pho, but also its extended hours compared to most other Vietnamese restaurants.

You can walk on down (or drive) to this place anytime between 9:00pm and 11:00pm any day of the week and still get served some of the best pho in Calgary.
