Kim Phung: Nondescript Vietnamese Restaurant
Kim Phung is one of the many nondescript Vietnamese restaurants that dot the Vancouver food scene. Located on the busy Victoria Drive strip of Killarney, it’s quite easy to pass by this shop without noticing it.
The Pho Dac Biet, or house special pho, was $9.50 for a large bowl. As it turns out, it wasn’t actually that big of a bowl of pho (at least when compared with other large pho bowls at other restaurants).
Overall, nothing really “special” about this pho but it gets the job done.
The Com Ga Bi Chu Hap ($10.75) included grilled chicken, shredded pork skin, and “meat pie” on rice. We topped it off with a fried egg because… well, it would be a shame to have a Vietnamese rice dish without a fried egg.
The “meat pie” is similar to yuk beng (a Chinese meat pie made with coarsely ground pork).
This is pretty much your typical Vietnamese hole-in-the-wall… nothing overly bad with it but nothing that would entice me to go out of my way to return either.
