I think the small has about 5 rice rolls. Nonetheless, I love bánh cuốn and a lot of Que Ling’s customers come here for the bánh cuốn.
Phở đặc biệt is essentially everything in a bowl of pho: tripe, brisket, flank, etc. Many, if not all phở restaurants would have a Phở đặc biệt on their menu.
The broth is flavourful, and not too salty. The only thing to note is the size. Jeff usually orders a large, but the large pho at Que Ling is more like a medium. If anything, there’s more room in your tummy for bánh cuốn.

Based in Nagoya, Sekai no Yamachan has several locations throughout Japan, and is known for their Tebasaki (deep-fried chicken wings)
Their most popular item on the menu is the Maboroshi no Tebasaki. The fried chicken wings are doused in a spicy soy and mirin-based sauce and covered in salt and pepper. It is pretty addictive; 5 pieces isn’t enough, so you will probably end up ordering more. They go so well with beer or Kaku Highball (whisky and soda, 390¥ for a single, approximately $4.70 CAD).
I went with a Cassis Oolong, since I love tea and alcohol. It’s essentially a fruity-flavoured tea.
We order a few other items, because we initially didn’t feel like eating just chicken wings. They ended up making us wish we just got the OG chicken wings, because it wasn’t as good as the chicken wings.
This is simply karaage fried chicken. If it was chicken cartilage, I may have liked this more.
Don’t get these, they aren’t worth it compared to the popular Maboroshi no Tebasaki.
Menu has English on it, so it’s tourist-friendly. Smoke and non-smoking sections are available.
