VanCity is tough in the wintertime. We all know what’s coming: months of cold grey days with nothing but rain and gloom. Sunshine and blues skies will seem like a distant memory, and your only true companion? A pair of rubber boots.
Winter is the time to take comfort in the small things in life, and what could be more comforting than a delicious bowl of pho? Fragrant with herbs, spiced just how you like it, each spoonful of rich broth is a small soul-warming victory against the cold and the grey.
