Perhaps the most popular Vietnamese food, Pho is a simple dish that consists of rice noodles in an aromatic, light, and clear broth made from boiling meat and spices.

Spring rolls have a special place in Vietnamese cuisine and they appear in many varieties and form a separate category of Vietnamese foods. Cha Giò is a spring roll that is fried to a crunchy and delicious perfection. The crispy shell with a soft vegetable and meat filling, dunked in a tangy sauce makes Cha Giò the perfect snack or appetizer before a meal. Typically these rolls are filled with meats like pork, crab, shrimp, or chicken, and greens, herbs, and rice vermicelli. Mì Phở Song Vũ we have a variety of Cha Giò dishes. You can get fried spring rolls made with shrimp, grilled beef, pork, or chicken. Never short of flavor or crunch, these rolls are the perfect tasty snack.
Although Cơm Tam is a simpler rice dish, it is often one of the most popular types of Vietnamese food. Many people who try Cơm Tam are surprised that the dish uses much smaller grains of rice than what we are used to seeing. The reason why the grains are so small is that this dish uses broken rice, or grains that have been half-ground during the milling process and discarded. Cơm Tam typically is served with grilled pork and topped with a mixture of vegetables. If you want to try Cơm Tam in Ontario, head to Mì Phở Song Vũ where we have a wide selection of Cơm Tam dishes.
