We were glad that Ben managed to come home for Christmas on Christmas day itself. It was a gloomy wet day and the boys wanted pho for lunch although I had already made a pot of Bak Kut Teh for Ben as he always ask for that when he comes home. We went to Pho An Nam at it’s new location.
Pho An Nam Restaurant had moved from it’s previous location at Granville Avenue to No. 3 Road where S & W Pepper House used to be. It was sad to see S & W Pepper House closed down the Richmond location.
When we asked the server the reason for the move, she told us the the Granville Avenue location will be developed into residential area. More high rise, we guessed.
The restaurant was not very busy on Christmas day.
Ben and I shared a Bun Bo Hue since Ben wanted to eat BKT when he got home. It was not too spicy but with generous amount of meat. This was $8.50.
We can always add more chilis if we want it to be more spicy.
Arkensen ordered the large Annam Special Mixed Beef Noodle. The large bowl was $7.50. The beef came out relatively raw and you can cook it further by pushing it down into the hot broth.
Standard side vegetables for you to add to your pho; bean sprouts, basil leaves and lime wedges. We usually do not add them in as it kind of dilute the broth. We just snack on the bean sprout while waiting for the noodles to arrive.
Nanzaro ordered the Special Dry Noodle for $8.50. It has an assortment of seafood like shrimp, squid and artificial crab meat and some sliced poached meat too.
The Special Dry Noodle came with a bowl of soup on the side. Nanzaro likes to add a little soup to moisten his noodles.
The Special Dry Noodle came with 2 types of noodles; rice noodle and egg noodles.
Pho An Nam accepts credit card. Ben commented that it’s expensive to eat out in Vancouver. He is used to the cheaper food price in Beijing after being there for the past 6 months.
