A Vietnamese Restaurant you Need to Try
Pho Boy’s menu is loaded with some of the best authentic Vietnamese food we’ve ever had in Edmonton. Located on Whyte Ave, this Vietnamese restaurant serves dishes ranging from your traditional pho with thinly sliced steak to freshly made vermicelli bowls.
Pho Boy’s large portions are definitely worth the price. Most of their dishes come with a balanced amount of vegetables and meat, and their unique take on spring rolls called: Legend Rolls
A Unique Type of Spring Roll
Our favourite item of this Vietnamese restaurant is definitely their Legend Rolls. This specialty spring roll is made of rice paper instead of your normal flour-based wrappers. Deep-fried to perfection, Pho Boy’s Legend rolls give you the most unique crunch you will ever taste.
What’s great about these spring rolls is you can choose to have them filled with pork and veggies or as a vegetarian option with mung beans. The vegetarian option also comes with vegan nuoc cham (fish sauce).
Pho, Vermicelli, Salads and Rice
Pho Boy has a smaller menu when compared to other traditional Vietnamese restaurants, but each of their dishes can be modified.
They have a “Build Your Own Pho” option where you can pick your own broth, toppings, and garnishes. The Pho Boy Dragon Special is loaded with cuts of beef that include steak, flank, beef balls, tendon, and a hand-made dragon ball. A chicken and vegetarian pho is also available.
Pho Boy’s Vermicelli Bowls and Salads are no joke. Each is loaded with a healthy portion of fresh vegetables and your choice of Vietnamese-inspired meats. Crispy chicken, lemongrass beef, shrimp skewers, or a vegetarian option can be found on their menu.
Another unique dish is their Golden Phoenix Broken Rice. Although it’s their only rice dish, the crispy chicken that comes with it is a must-try. Marinated with lemongrass, soya sauce, fish sauce, and BBQ seasoning, you won’t find this type of chicken anywhere else.
Pho Boy is located on Whyte Avenue at 10037b 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z2 and are open Tuesdays to Sundays.
