2. If you’re looking for a spot to host your weekly wings night, these might just be the most tasty (and greasy) hot wings in town.
3. I would argue that Pho Hung on Spadina has the best pho in the city.
Pho Hung is the quintessential haven for cheap and incredible Asian food. The Pho is some of the most flavourful I’ve had in Toronto, as well as some of the most generous portions in regards to the noodles and meat that are served up in each bowl. For that alone, I would recommend Pho Hung over any other pho spot in the city.
Besides the pho, there are countless other reasons to check this place out. If you’re in desperate search of the best wings in the city, Duff’s will likely take the cake, but I’d bet that these would come close. The spicy chicken wings at Pho Hung are served piping hot, in terms of both spice and temperature. They’re greasy, they’re cheap, they’re decently meaty, and they’re awesome. Grab a plate of these and you won’t be disappointed.
Also worth ordering are the pork spring rolls. I don’t know what it is, but vietnamese spring rolls are about one thousand times more satisfying than chinese spring rolls. They’re a bit crispier and a bit greasier. I can’t get enough of them.
For a medium bowl of pho, you’re looking at about $7-$8, about average for this mega cheap phenomenon that seems to be sweeping over the city as of late. If Jamie and I are heading to Kensington Market or a house party in Chinatown, we usually stop in to Pho Hung for a quick bite before slamming back all of the beer we can carry. We usually opt to eat in the left hand side of the restaurant which is kind of in the form of a gazebo style. It’s super cozy (and definitely more so than other pho spots in the city), which really gets me in the mood for some good ol’ pho.
Good food at low prices means that more money can be spent on booze for the night, which is always a plus! Thus, I’d highly recommend this spot if you’re looking for some pre-party food… especially considering the LCBO is only a few blocks over.Her Take
