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.
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.

tastes of that region. Our parents and grandparents have
taught us the secrets of using our culture's herbs and spices
to make delicious dishes,
and we have blended these in ways that Texans

Not just a bowl of soup...Phở is a delicious Meal in
Lots of people come into our restaurant with some
misconceptions about the deliciously elegant Vietnamese soup
. 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
What is it?
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
its name to phở. This is how we got
the hearty, delicious, very Vietnamese meal that we
know and love.
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
it is brought to your table, immediately put just
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
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
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.
