Pho Pasteur Saigon
Buried in the heart of Calgary's bustling Chinatown is this simple but delicious authentic Vietnamese restaurant. Conveniently located a few blocks from both the Calgary International Hostel and Eau Claire Market, it provides a delicious meal at an economical price. The inside is decorated with Oriental-style hanging lanterns and grass window shades. There are plenty of rice and vermicelli dishes to choose from, with pork as the most popular meat on the menu. Do not expect to pay anymore than CAD6 for a dish.
The place, although "shabby", is well kept and prestine clean.
The spring rolls are to die for, nothing like ever tasted before.
We always order the Pho house special, and it beats, hands down, any other Vietnamese restaurant in the city. The meat is lean, the tendons tasty!
For the price that you have to pay, it's definately a sweet deal.
My bf keeps trying to get me to go to different Vietnamese restaurants, but there's no point. Why fix something that ain't broken?
While we can't necessarily prove it, Pho Pasteur Saigon has to be one of the original Calgary Vietnamese restaurants. We've been going here since about 1994 when a guy we worked with brought us there.
Hanna and Thao run an efficient little place that's always packed and has a simple menu with a perfect combo of dishes. It's well worth a visit and, based on travels in Vietnam, seems to serve as authentic a bowl of soup as you can get in town.
The sprinng rolls here are a must to try - hand rolled and fresh. Everything I've tried here is delicious and fresh. Value is also unbelievable. They certainly give you a nice amount of food and the price is certainly reasonable. I think this is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Calgary.
I was fortunate to stumble upon Pho Pasteur one day while strolling through Chinatown. It is an unpretentious, tucked-away treasure of a restaurant, with tasty food that engenders fierce loyalty in patrons. If you believe it possible to eat a sumptious Vietnamese meal (for 2) for under 20 bucks, and don't mind sacrificing a little elbow room, then you must try this place. The food is unrivalled! (For anyone who yearns for St. John's Saigon Cafe, this is the place for you.)
I would say this is the best Vietnamese restaurant in Calgary. I've been going to this place for over 15 years. I can taste that the food is better than a lot of places because I've tried a lot of others; even then, I always end up going back to Pho Pasteur. I highly recommend this place for beginners or even the most seasoned vet. of eaters.
This place is a little hole in the wall, but we've been going there for 10+ years, and have never been dissapointed.
It is a quiet, simple place, with old paintings on the wall and a dusty bamboo entrance, but the food is fantastic, and the people are too.
