I don't know what it is about pho soup, but it's seriously amazing. When you have a really, really good bowl of pho, it's like your whole world stops; it's just you and the soup.

Montreal does definitely have a good amount of awesome spots to cop a bowl of pho, but one of the ones that stands out the most, IMO, is actually a little hidden.
Pho Mymy (9460 Boulevard De L'Acadie) is located in Ahuntsic, on a hidden stretch of L'Acadie Boulevard right near Marche-Centrale.
Even though it might be out of the way for some of us, trust me when I tell you that it's more than worth the trek. The pho delights here are unlike any I, personally, have ever tasted.
They've got a wide variety of pho soups to choose from, including my personal favourite, their Tai Nam Gan (rare beef, flank, and soft tendon) soup. They also do a seriously awesome spicy beef Bun Bo Hue soup.
I've actually tried a couple of different soups on their menu, though, and I can tell you that no matter what you get, their broth is always complex and flavourful, and their ingredients are always top of the line and super fresh.
However, if you're not in a pho kind of mood, then no worries. Pho Mymy has a wide variety of Vietnamese dishes, all made with the same obvious love that their pho soups are made with.
Their crispy noodle sautes, for example? Out. Of. This. World. Some crispy noodle dishes I've tried in the past tend to be a little bland, IMO, but this spot really knows how to bring out the flavour in whatever you're eating.
