When it's hot outside, nothing tastes better than Bún Khô, our traditional noodle bowl!

If you ever get a chance to visit Vietnam, you will  see people eating the popular bún bowls (rice vermicelli noodle bowls with grilled or stir-fried meat or fish on top) everywhere...in restaurants and at home. It's a cool dish for a warm climate. Bún Khô (pronounced Boong Koh) is becoming very popular in Texas, too, especially as temperatures rise this summer.  We start with Bún noodles, served cool, and add tasty grilled or stir-fried meat, lots of fresh vegetables and top it off with a bit of sweet-and-sour sauce. It seems exactly the right meal to eat when it's hot outside.

Grilled pork & shrimp bún

Bún Khô starts with a bed of bún rice noodles, with sliced fresh cilantro, pickled carrots, green lettuce, raw bean sprouts, green onions, and peanuts on top. Then we add deliciously marinated and grilled or stir-fried meat, and maybe a cut-up egg roll. Pour some delicious sweet-sour sauce over the top, then mix it up in the bowl, and you're good to go. For extra flavor, try squirting a little spicy sriracha sauce on top. This summer, try some Bún Khô and see if you don't agree that it is one of the best hot-weather dishes that you know.

Not just a bowl of soup...Phở is a delicious Meal in Itself!

Lots of people come into our restaurant with some misconceptions about the deliciously elegant Vietnamese soup called phở . Many people say they "want more of a meal than just soup," so they order something else, and miss out on a thrill. If they would only try it, they would realize that phở is a delicious meal in itself, and will keep you far from hunger for hours. Let's find out more about it.

What is it?

First of all, the word phở is pronounced "FUH?" like you're asking a question (that's why the "ở" has a little question mark over it). The name is shortened from the French pot-au-feu or "pot on the fire," the most celebrated dish in France. Pot-au-feu came to Vietnam during the French colonial years; the Vietnamese improved it by adding local seasonings to give it a uniquely Vietnamese taste,and shortening its name to phở. This is how we got the hearty, delicious, very Vietnamese meal that we know and love.

Phở starts out with beef broth, cooked for hours and seasoned with traditional Vietnamese spices. Then it is poured over special noodles, called bánh phở. Then, depending on what the customer orders, we add thinly sliced beef, seafood, or chicken, then some purple and green onions for garnish. We serve it with a side plate of fresh bean sprouts, a wedge of lime, fresh jalapeno slices, fresh basil and fresh cilantro (coriander).

How to eat phở

When it is brought to your table, immediately put just the bean sprouts (not the herbs) into the soup and roll them under the noodles, so that they can cook a little. Next, put in a dollop of the hoisin (brown) sauce, and a little sriracha (hot) sauce on top. Squeeze in the lime and stir with your chopsticks. Then carefully remove the basil and the cilantro leaves from the stem and lay them on top. Add jalapeños if you like. Now you're ready to eat your phở.

Get some chopstics and an Asian spoon from the spice rack in the middle of the table. Take your chopsticks in your dominant hand, the spoon in the other, and get started. If you can't use chopsticks, Don will show you how, or you can use a fork. Grab some basil, a bite of meat, and some noodles at the same time and slurp them up, then slurp a spoonful of broth, alternating. (Slurping is very polite in Vietnamese culture, and a compliment to the chef.) Don loves to hear the sound of people slurping their phở in the Vietnamese way. It says to him that they love it, and that makes Don happy.
