Got Pho? Thien Kim Vietnamese Restaurant

This little unassuming Vietnamese restaurant tucked away on Nanaimo Street next to TD Canada is hands down my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in Vancouver. It’s definitely a no frills location but it is clean enough and the service is always friendly. I really appreciate that this restaurant doesn’t use MSG (or at least very little) because I hate the thirsty after taste I usually get at Vietnamese restaurants.

What I ate: Green Papaya Salad.

always order this no matter what time of year – I even order this when its negative ten degrees outside!

The portion is generous and very fresh. I love the sauce they use because it’s perfectly balanced between savory, salty and sweet.

What I ate: Vermicelli bowl with Lemongrass Chicken and Springroll

This is another solid dish that I get quite often. The chicken is always moist, and the greens fresh and crisp.

What I ate: Bún bò Huế

They don’t serve it with pork leg or pig blood curd which is completely okay with me. I don’t eat those two items anyway, so that’s partially the reason why I prefer their version. It’s not too spicy and the flavours are always spot on.
