Tomorrow's Secret Dot Com Pho Location - Cuu Long Restaurant
After a WonderPho Experience at Cambie (Vancouver) Vietnamese Restaurant, the Dot Com Crew moves on to a new location in Vancouver. If you missed out on the drama, much controversy has swirled around the mass exodus to Vancouver from Richmond. John Chow calls this a Dot Com Split after the failure of the Richmond meet, which attracted an inflated seven people versus the true five that attended the WonderPho Edition. There was no video to prove the numbers, but we have it on good authority that John counted immediate family members in this total, which puts the real numbers at three. Since John often goads me about getting my Dot Com Pho videos up faster, the fact that there was no Richmond Dot Com Pho video is a telling tale of what really happened.
We hope John reconsiders his stubborn protest over a fifteen minute drive to Vancouver (vs a five minute drive within Richmond). Sources do say that there are members of the Chow clan that are equally sick of going to Pho Lan every week. I wonder if the change from Pho Lan to Pho Hoa this week in Richmond was in response to this. However, it was John himself that bitched at us for being disloyal and leaving Pho Lan so we are confused by his own move to Pho Hoa, a chain restaurant in Richmond. Even we won't venture to another Pho Restaurant in Richmond for fear of retribution from Mr. Lan.
Moving forward, this week's location has been chosen. Located at the corner of Knight and Kingsway, this restaurant called "Cuu Long" is not far from our first superior Pho experience in Vancouver at Pho Thai Hoa. It is also a B-Line directly from Richmond across the Knight Street bridge so we hope to see John this week so we can put an end to this drama. This location meets our criteria with a central location that is easily accessible by transit and parking should be somewhat improved due to the lack of the next door Dim Sum that Pho Thai Hoa parkers had to contend with and the trendier neighbourhood that Cambie (Vancouver) Vietnamese Restaurant is located.

If you want to come out this week, all we ask is that you either leave a comment here or Twitter Me so that we can hold down enough seats to take care of everyone. Despite all the drama, John is still a friend and a dot com brother and we'll always have a seat saved for him.
See you all tomorrow! 😀
