A Day in Toronto, Great Pho and Motorcycles

A great day in Toronto.  That cosmopolitan, ever growing construction mega building metropolis. If you are looking for great Pho,  delicious Vietnamese noodle soup in a big bowl. Look no further than Pho Hung Restaurant, 350 Spadina Ave. The China Town there may be fading, but there are still some great places to eat.

Prices at the Pho are reasonable, food is delicious, and the setting is relaxed. Pour your complimentary red tea while you wait. It’s around the corner from Kensington Market, a transitioning market from ethnic food enclave to trendy beat hang out.

The  grilled beef vermicelli is really delicious and comes with spring rolls, and finish it off with Jackfruit milkshake.  If you have never had Jackfruit you will be surprised at the sweet gentle flavour.

Once you have finished the meal, for this weekend only, 21st  and 22nd March you can head over to the Motorcycle Spring Show.  Here you will find bikes, accessories and information on everything motorcycle, at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd.

The bikes look so good,  just the thing for the Easy Rider in every Empty Bester.  It’s our turn to have some toys, be it a Harley, Kawasaki, or Suzuki and many more. Imagine taking to the road on one of these beauties.

You can feel the wind in your hair. There was information on training available at the show.  One tip that was shared with me:  If you train at a community college it is considered continuing education and is tax deductible.

    And I just noticed – Pho Hung is at 350 Spadina Avenue – I used to live at 171 for about a year. I tried to find it on Google earth but it looks as if it was pulled down and something else built there. It was a rooming house and I had a room on the top floor – it was a very interesting place to live – lots of ‘characters’!

      You really covered a lot of ground in your time on this side of the pond, Gilly. China Town has changed so much, The old Pagoda that marked the are is gone. Much of the population moved to more affluent areas as their situation improved. Kensington Market is now trendy, as the nearby college was converted into condos. It still is interesting but for different reasons.

    OMG! The motorbikes!!!! SO beautiful. Not to be ridden of course – works of art to be polished and adored 🙂 Reminds me of a Harley Davison exhibition I went to at the Barbican years ago – just breath taking. I love your little peeps at my old home. Thank you. Sigh. (The food looks divine too by the way.)

      I am glad you like the bikes. I thought they were pretty cool. I tease my children and ask them how would they like me to turn up at their college on one of those bikes. That’s what Empty Nesters should do. Maybe I can get someone to give me a ride?
