PHINALLY – PHO PAS!

Contibuted by Andre Bermon. As the name suggests, Pho Pas is clever play-on-words to describe this French – Vietnamese cross-culture eatery that uniquely blends the exotic tastes of South East Asia and the tried and true cuisine viva la France. No faux pas here!

 
Nestled in the heart of Cabbagetown at 480 Parliament Street, Tim Fray and Jason Maw (of Fray/Maw Hospitality) team up with renowned oyster shucker Patrick McMurray to present – La Maison of fusion food – Pho Pas Social Bistro!

 
An appetizing menu offers such staples as roasted marinated chicken breast, choice cuts of steak and homemade burgers. Pho Pas also includes some varied Asian style dishes that feature Vietnamese style “Pho” soups, an Asian sea bass entrée along with healthy portions of tofu and vegetable cold rolls. A tantalizing assortment that truly satisfies the complexities of our sophisticated contemporary appetites.

 
It would be rather ‘Faux-Pas’ to not indulge in the fabulous selection of oysters from the current ‘Guinness World Record Holder – Patrick McMurray’, who back in 2010, shucked 38 oysters in under a minute! Attempt if you dare. Patrick serves up a variety of oysters from Atlantic and Pacific Canada as well as France and Europe. Each serving is complimented with a collection of homemade sauces.

 
Talented Head Chef, Jason Maw is also a skilled mixologist – he makes a mean Mai Thai!! – although he will be seen primarily behind the kitchen pass. His Steak Frites with melty Asian inspired butter IS AMAZING! We’re looking forward to enjoying the “LUCKY BUHDDA’’ beer when it becomes available- meanwhile they have a great selection of draft beer and an inhouse wine selection for those seeking a nice pairing with their food.

 
“We are happy to be part of the neighbourhood,” says Tim Fray, a manager with over 30 years experience in the restaurant industry. “We understand the challenges and want to build slow.”

 
The restaurant hopes to expand as an event space, hosting regular open mic nights and DJ sets. A party room in the basement seats 35 and can accommodate large business functions. Be sure to check out their Valentines Day event!
