These 17 Ottawa Pho Restaurants Will Convert All Your Pho-Hating Friends

It's pronounced "pha", duh.

With winter coming along, most people can definitely appreciate a nice hot bowl of pho. It tastes amazing, there are so many varieties, and it'll definitely heat up your body on one of those -40 freezing cold days. That being said, although most people can definitely appreciate the amazing Vietnamese dish, there are a lot of haters who think it's just water with broth (they're wrong!)

This can suck for those of us who absolutely looove pho but don't have any friends to go get it with. So if you're looking for a list of places in Ottawa to convert your friends into pho addicts, you've come to the right place.
