Pho: quite simply, an utterly captivating dish – simple in execution yet enormously complex in flavor.  This Vietnamese noodle soup, pronounced “fuh,” is upon first glance, just noodle water with tiny bits of greenery – snooze.  But once inundated by the aromatic steam rising from the clear yet strikingly rich broth of boiled down marrow and bone nectar, you become intrigued… and must know [taste] more.

 Set in a deep bowl with rice noodles, served with a mini soup ladle and chopsticks, Pho primarily consists of broth, noodles and thinly sliced raw beef that cooks in the temperature of the hot soup. Traditional garnishes include: basil, shallots, lime leaves, lime juice, bean sprouts and peppers, added at your discretion.

The noodle soup is typically associated with the capital city, as the late Vietnamese writer Thach Lam made clear in one of his works in the 1930s on local cuisine: “Pho is a specialty of Hanoi. You can taste it in other places. But the pho is better in Hanoi than anywhere else.”
