Pho Tau Bay, Cabramatta, NSW

Regarded as one of the finest phos in Sydney, Pho Tau Bay is a no-frills eatery in Sydney’s Vietnamese heartland of Cabramatta. The famous pho bo (beef pho) is the way to go, adding handfuls of herbs, beansprouts and sliced chillies to taste.

Café O-Mai, Annerley, QLD

With its Instagram-worthy murals and pretty plates of food, it’s little wonder Café O-Mai is a social media standout. Thankfully, the pho is worth the hype, plus it’s available from 7am onwards, so you can breakfast in authentic Vietnamese fashion. Like Pho Nom in Melbourne, Café O-Mai uses top-shelf ingredients, such as Cape Grim beef and Byron Bay Berkshire pork.
