Pho Rice Noodle Soup (Phở)
Phở is considered as the national dish of Vietnam. With 100 years in the making, Pho originated in Northern Vietnam during the mid-1880s. The dish was heavily influenced by both Chinese and French cooking. Rice noodle and spices were imported from China; red meat eating was made popular by the French. It is believed that “phở” was derived from “pot au feu” a French soup. Vietnamese blended the Chinese, French and native influences; the evolution of the perfect comfort food – warm, hearty and deliciously refreshing. Pho was originally sold at dawn and dusk by roaming street vendors, who shouldered mobile kitchens on carrying poles. It is our signature Street Food.
Traditionally made with beef or chicken broth that is flavoured with various spices and topped with various herbs.
This broth is cooked by simmering marrow-rich beef bones for many long hours (~ over 5 hours) to capture the rich and intense essence of beef in the broth.
