It was cold and rainy today. Just the type of weather for a hot bowl of noodle soup. We went to the Thai Son Restaurant on No 3 Road. Is just across the road from the Richmond Centre.


The Thai Son Restaurant is owned by a Vietnamese couple. Although the name Thai Son appears to be a Thai restaurant, it is not … it is a purely Vietnamese restaurant. Thai Son has a restaurant too under the same name in East Broadway in Vancouver.

Apparently, this restaurant was very popular back in the 1990’s among the Hong Konger crowd. There are a number of photos hanging on the wall of some old Hong Kong movie stars in the restaurant who emigrated to Vancouver prior to the 1997 handover to China.

As in all Vietnamese restaurants, they always serve first the complementary bean sprout. Thai Son serves the bean sprouts blanched and warm.


Suanne ordered the Rice Noodle in Special Vietnamese Stew. The stew was not thick and the beef chunks were tender. Nanzaro shared this with his mum.

Arkensen ordered a large Beef Ball noodles. He finished the entire large bowl. We are glad to see him eat the whole bowl because he normally does not eat much and is underweight for his height. Arkensen likes to add lots of teriyaki sauce to his noodle.

I ordered the Rice Noodle in Spicy Soup. It was quiet spicy and with the hot soup, I worked out quite a bit of sweat … just right for a cold and rainy night.

    I don’t know if you knew this already but….the bean sprouts they give you at the beginning is not an appetizer…you’re supposed to put them into the hot soup of the pho…the heat of the soup is supposed to cook them.
