We were so excited when we discovered Pho Han last December. It was in Richmond and close to our home and work. There was a no MSG sign on the window and it’s another husband and wife team little germ.
Their menu is simple and covers the basic pho, vermicelli, rice plates and drinks.

It was Thanksgiving Day morning and I had a hair appointment in the area. Since a coworker from Quebec told me that he likes the poutine from Frenchies’ Diner, I went in for a quick bite.

It looked alright. I ordered a glass of Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc. Afterall, a date isn’t a date without a little wine. 🙂
It took a while for the food to come, so I enjoyed myself by slowly sipping my glass of wine and enjoying the summer breeze. The view wasn’t bad at all.

It was a sunny day in July. And we decided to go to Steveston for a late lunch. It’s been too long since we had the burgers so I will just post the photos with brief comment here.
D ordered Organic burger.
