After tallying up votes from hundreds of loyal patrons, Ottawa's Pho Bo Ga 2 has won the Consumer Choice Award for the best Vietnamese restaurant in the Canadian capital. While locals have been declaring this eatery the best for years, visitors may not yet fully appreciate how incredible the food really is. If anyone wants to step outside of their Ottawa hotel and feel as though they've walked into an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, they should stop by Pho Bo Ga 2 for an international experience.
But first things first: What exactly is Vietnamese food? Is it just like all of the other Asian cuisine out there? On the contrary! Vietnamese food has managed to fuse together French and Chinese cultures while creating a completely unique culinary tradition that can only be found in the actual country or top-notch restaurants like Pho Bo Ga 2.
Dishes like pho noodle soup, which are characterized by a rich beef broth and rice noodles to die for, and banh mi sandwiches, which have flaky baguettes and a thin layer of pate in every bite, are only a couple of the staple dishes visitors can expect when they sit down for their first meal at this Ottawa restaurant.
