Do you like Pho? Do you like burger? Why not combine both into one?! Such a genius idea, right?! The moment my friend and I heard there was a Pho burger in Toronto, it definitely piqued our interests as we weren’t sure how the owner was going to put pho, which is a traditional soup into a burger!

The store itself was really small with around 6 stools if you choose to eat-in, however it was really clean and the staff was extremely friendly. I went during the soft opening and they were accepting cash only, so I’m not sure if that have changed now.

I found the in-store price and the price on their site to be different, so the owner should really look into that. Most of the burgers run about $10 after taxes and if you decide to upgrade to a combo, it will probably ring you in to almost $20, which I think is quite expensive considering they are located near Ryerson. The cashier also informed us that the burgers will take around 10 – 15 minutes, which I didn’t mind because that mean the burgers were made to order ;).

I’m sorry B if I’m not using your shot LOL.. I asked him to hold the burger but all the juices dripped down onto his arm, and the shots didn’t turn out well so… yea.

The portion was actually pretty small for $7 and it was just enough for B without filling him up. The burger was served with a side of pho jus sauce and you were supposed to either dip the bun into the broth or just take a few sips while eating. I recommend the latter as the burger was already quite messy to eat with the sriracha and hoisin sauce dripping down. The pho burger had all the toppings of a pho noodle soup (without the noodles of course) – bean sprouts, basil, sriracha and hoisin sauce was not necessary since I’m Northern Viet but it’s alright to have it :). The patties were freshly grounded in store daily and they were cooked to medium well, and served on a fresh ace bakery bun.

Ok so I’m Viet and my mom taught me how to make the traditional northern style Vietnamese pho, I can tell you from the get go this broth is AUTHENTIC. It was clear, not too fatty and very flavorful. The burger arrived piping hot and it was just incredible! Juicy and delicious, sip some of the broth and it tasted just like eating a bowl of pho. With that said, I would have liked it more if the patty was slightly bigger and if the beansprouts were semi-cooked to preserve some crunch, that would have been nice as I felt the beansprouts were quite soggy.

Overall my friend and I really enjoyed the pho burger! Although the price was quite expensive, I can see the burger as something that you just crave for once in a while and I will definitely be back! Also, I’m Viet and I’m extremely picky with Viet food, so if I say this is good, then I’m 100% positive that you won’t be disappointed ;).
