Have you been in the mood for some exceptional pho and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get it?

Have you been in the mood for some exceptional pho and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get it?

Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one–especially when places that serve delicious pho are plentiful across cities.

When it comes to great pho restaurants, everything is important. Is the medium rare beef truly medium rare and deliciously pink in the middle? Is the broth hot and flavourful? Is the hot sauce container full and ready to go. 

Both Mississauga and Oakville are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable Vietnamese  joints–but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

What places were competing?
