I’ve been on the road for awhile now, and being away from Vancouver (Lower Mainland) makes me crave and miss Asian food A LOT. When searching for the “best pho” in Kamloops or any Pho for that matter, my GPS brought me to Donut King & Coffee. What?
Inside it looks like your typical donut shop. Donuts, pastries, and your standard Double Double. This place had something else. A magical bowl of Pho Beef noodles 7.99. The soup was hot and wasn’t too bad. Very standard. Beef balls and sliced beef. Everything was pretty fresh.
Conceptually it is strange when the smell of pho contrasts with flour and sugar. Suppose this is why no matter how hard the owners tried to introduce a sweet combo of Bánh mì (Vietnamese Subs), coffee and donut for under $5 it never worked. What’s harder about keeping it all fresh was that the typical Bánh mì ingredients were not readily available in Kamloops. Such a shame. The Vietnamese owner was very pleasant to chat with!
