I was in downtown Vancouver attending a program. On the lunch break, I went out with two new friends to get a bite. One of them lives nearby and she volunteered to be our lunch guide.
She brought us to One Saigon Bistro on Hornby St. because she was having some tinkering in her throat and a bowl of hot noodle soup should be a good remedy.
We arrived during peak lunch hour. Luckily we were able to secure a table as a couple of customers were just about to leave. The restaurant was small with tight seating. Customers order their food and pay at the counter at the back of the seating area. Food will be deliver to your table.
Our guide had a bowl of wonton rice noodle soup. She commented that she had better pho than this.
The other friend had a beef pho. The sliced beef arrived slightly pink. She had a small appetite as she did not finish her bowl of noodles.
I had Green Papaya Salad. My order came much slower that the pho. My papaya salad was not bad, garnished with a few shrimp. It took me quite a while to finish my salad as there were a lot of chewing to do.
