Com Pho 99

Happy Family Day everyone!

Coming up next is a another new review, Com Pho 99, located on 11019 – 107 Ave.  For those uninitiated, ‘Pho’ is Vietnamese for Beef Noodle Soup and ‘Com’ is Vietnamese for Rice.  I have no idea why they have 99 in the name, could be Wayne Gretzky fans I guess.  The restaurant is cute and small with private sections in it, I didn’t know what to expect looking from the outside but it’s nice in here.


I ordered the ‘Sate Rice Noodle Soup‘ for $8.99.  My apologizes about the mixing things up in the before taking a picture of my meal, I was over-anxious waiting for my meal and it looked delicious when I first got it I totally forgot to take a presentation picture.  The meal is topped with cucumber slices, chopped red chilies, cilantro, peanuts, green and white onion slices.  It’s a standard looking pho broth with chili oil situation here, at least there seems to be a little bit more to it than some of the other places I’ve been.  The broth is nice and not over-salted, there’s a bit of added flavouring that I noticed when I flipped the noodles but they didn’t add too much flavour to it.  There was a decent amount of beef but a little lacking amount of noodles that were a tad bit overcooked.  Overall, the price of the meal for what you get a on the steep side, especially knowing that across the street at Thanh Son, price is $6.50 (review to come out next).


Broth: 2.5/5   Portion: 2/5   Overall Taste: 3/5   Value: 2.5/5

Overall Satisfaction: 2.5/5

      I haven’t reviewed lately due to health reasons, but at one point I did suffer from ‘pho fatigue’. I only have a few restaurants left to review and I’m still considering what to do next.

    It’s been over a year since your last review. I assume you have tried every pho place in etown and have retired from reviewing? I haven’t been to etown in a number of years but I plan to use your blog if/when I’m in town. And who gets tired of pho really?!

      Yeah, I’m pretty much retired although there’s just a few more restaurants to do. Maybe when I’m not as lazy I’ll get back to it.

      Thanks for reading!

        I’m about to embark on my own pho journey in Winnipeg. I’ve been to a handful but I want to try them all. Keep reviewing. I look forward to your next one!
