New Opening: i Love Pho
Chef Van Nguyen had been running a number of Vietnamese restaurant kitchens in the GTA for nearly twenty years and had come to a point in her career where she felt it was time to open up a place she can call her own. She has always liked Mississauga and chose to start her new venture in this city.
Chef Nguyen strives to differentiate her restaurant from other restaurants in the same category by focusing on service, the presentation and plating of her dishes, and the process in which she makes her dishes which are prepared daily with no added preservatives.
Concept: Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai dishes with the majority of the menu focusing on Vietnamese cuisine.
Signature Dish: Chef Nguyen has a number of signature dishes which include: #201 special house beef rice noodle soup; #306 house special rice noodle & egg noodle soup; #314 wonton with egg noodle soup; #411 grilled beef & spring roll with vermicelli; #414 grilled pork, grilled meat balls & spring roll with vermicelli; #505 grilled pork chop with fried egg on steamed broken rice; #427 fish, shrimp & pork in fish-paste soup with vermicelli; #429 fried fish fillet with vermicelli soup; #101 deep fried spring rolls, #102 fresh rolls with shrimp & pork, and #109 Thai shrimp mango salad.
