Today we are visiting a true hidden gem right here in Barrhaven: Pho Thi Fusion! Located at 129 Riocan Avenue in the Chapman Mills Marketplace, this little restaurant packs big flavours into every dish. With a large variety of fusion choices, there is something on the menu to suit all tastes. They are also now open for take out until 2am so take advantage and up your game when it comes to late night snacks. Pho Thi Fusion would be perfect for a fancy meal at home or an amazing family dinner (the food is that good, it really depends on how you plate and present it!) PRO TIP: Buy multiple entrées to share; there are so many great flavours that it might be hard to pick just one!
For dinner, we were treated to a delicious mix of Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese fusion flavours. We started with a hot bowl of Tom Yum Goong, followed by Shrimp Spring Rolls. Our main courses included Thai Curry, Pad Thai, and Sushi. Remember, we don’t pick what we get but this was a perfect combination of flavours selected for us; when you’re not sure what to get while looking at a menu, this is a great way to order (the staff generally know what to recommend!)
The Tom Yum Goong is the perfect soup for a cold January night! This soup features Shrimp & Tofu with pineapple, mushrooms, tomatos, and herbs. Drawing it’s flavours from the shrimp, pineapple, and spices, every bite provides an explosion of flavours both spicy and sweet. The subtle heat will warm you from the inside.
The Shrimp Spring Rolls featured perfectly cooked shrimp and crisp fresh veggies.
The Thai Curry featured both chicken and shrimp along with sweet basil, coriander, veggies and coconut milk. Mixed with the perfect blend of spices, this yellow curry will leave you wanting more.
The Pad Thai with Shrimp and Chicken was out of this world. Upon opening the container, the smell was incredible – if you love peanut anything, this is the dish for you. Generous amounts of chicken and shrimp made this the perfect dish.
And finally, the sushi! The Spicy Salmon Rolls and Ebiten Rolls (Shrimp tempura, massago, & avocado) provided a delightful freshness and brightness. We highly recommend pairing them with a main course!
