275 Bank Street
This is a new restaurant, just opened on June 1, 2006 at noon. It’s another in the collection of Pho Bo Ga places, but a bit ourside the typical Pho Bo Ga area. It’s closer to the downtown core and that can only help.
The hours of operation were not shown anywhere nor do they have a take out menu.
The menu looks similar in places to the one at the New Pho Bo Ga LA, but this one is much smaller, having about half the dishes. As well as pho, there’s bun and some other choices.
Decor is really nice, with fancy tables and chairs. (more about the table and chairs in the comments, though. please see below).
Prices were typical for the Pho Bo Ga collection, with soups ranging from $6 to $8. It looked to us like the portion sizes varied. People with small bowls said that their bowls looked larger than typical, while people who ordered large bowls said that the bowls were smaller than other places.
This place had many dishes marked as being Halal. There was some pork on the menu but none of the soups and none of the spring rolls were pork.
Update: Truc means “bamboo” in Vietnamese. It rhymes with “fluke”. And Pho Bo Ga means “soup beef chicken”.
Update 2: The sign outside the restaurant and the menu have the name changed from “Pho Bo Ga Truc” to just “Truc”. One staff member said they had to change the sign because they are now licensed. Otherwise they are the same restaurant. (2009-03-27)
