Pho Mi 99 - Burnamthorpe and Grand Park Dr. - Mississauga
So this is a place I had been to several times and in my girlfriends sickness, decided to take her out for some warm soup. BTW if you are broke, and need lots of food, hit up any Vietnamese restaurant and get a large bowl of Pho.. For only a dollar extra, you can go from a small to a monstrous portion, which my girlfriends brother attempted to take down. Pho Mi 99 is a fairly good place, with a cozy atmosphere that always seems to be busy, but not so crazy that you have to wait for a seat. They "apparently" also use no MSG in their foods, but I have yet to confirm this fact. They seem to be a little disoriented with the whole "starters" idea, however. We ordered two plates of spring rolls, only to have the pho come out almost immediately and the spring rolls ten minutes later. They were pretty good though, I have to admit. I got a Pho with meatballs and chicken.. somewhat different then normal, the chick dipped in the hoison like sauce and what I assume to be sirachi was pretty damn good. It would have been pretty bland without, so I ended up using a lot of sauce. All in all, a nice little (and cheap) meal. If you really wanted to push the boundaries, you could probably get one large bowl per two people, and that would make for a veryy cheap meal.. Anyways here are some pics.. as always with my shitty iPhone (my bad).
