Pho Pasteur

One of the be

Pho Pasteur is proud of its history and heritage – and this pride translates to one superb dish after the next. Mr & Mrs Pham arrived in Australia in 1978 as refugees from South Vietnam, and the recipes they use have been in the family for generations. As the name suggests, Pho Pasteur’s signature dish is their Pho – rich beef stock, the perfect blend of herbs and spices, and great depth of flavour. Fans of Vietnamese food should look no further, there are but a handful of Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney that can produce a bowl of Pho with as much depth of flavour as Pho Pasteur's.

They also do an outstanding spring roll wrapped in lettuce (a must try), a mean poached chicken Bun Bo Hue (a spicy noodle soup), and a seriously good soft shell crab.  Pho Pasteur has a great range of options for vegans, too – thanks to Mrs Pham’s mother being a vegan for over 50 years, and passing on her recipes down the line. This is not the cheapest Vietnamese you’ll find, and there’s nothing tizzy about the décor (well, except the mirrors), but it’s a standout for all the right reasons.
