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

If you ever visit Vietnam, you will notice that it gets hot almost every day there. You will also see people eating the popular bún (rice vermicelli) bowls everywhere: in homes and street restaurants alike. Bún Khô (pronounced Boong Koh) is becoming very popular in Texas, too, especially as temperatures rise this summer.  Bún noodles, served cool with some fresh vegetables and a sweet-and-sour sauce, seems exactly the right meal when it's hot outside.

Grilled pork & shrimp bún

Bún Khô starts with deliciously marinated and grilled or stir-fried meat set on a bed of bún rice noodles, with sliced fresh cilantro, pickled carrots, green lettuce, raw bean sprouts, green onions, and peanuts. Mix it up in the bowl, and pour some delicious sweet-sour sauce over the top. For extra flavor, try it with spicy sauce on top. Get some Bún Khô and see if you don't agree that it is one of the best hot-weather dishes that we serve.

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 derived from the French pot-au-feu or "pot on the fire," the most celebrated dish in France. The Vietnamese, quick to improve anything, took pot-au-feu and modified it to make it their very own, taking its name, phở, from the last word, but giving it a uniquely Vietnamese pronunciation. Thus,  phở came to mean the hearty, delicious, very Vietnamese meal that we know and love.

Pho starts out with beef broth, cooked for hours and seasoned with traditional Vietnamese spices. Then special noodles, called bánh phở , are added to it. Depending on what the customer orders, thinly sliced beef, seafood, or chicken is added, then some green onions for garnish. It is traditionally served with 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 under the noodles, so that they can cook a little. Next, put in a dollop of the hoisin (brown) sauce, and sriracha (hot) sauce to taste. Squeeze in the lime and add the jalapenos on top if you like. Stir with your chopsticks. Then carefully remove the basil and the cilantro leaves from the stem and lay them on top. Now you're ready to eat your phở.

Take your chopsticks in your dominant hand, a spoon in the other, and dive in. Grab some basil and some noodles with your chopsticks and slurp them, then slurp a spoonful of broth, alternating. Slurping is very polite in Vietnamese culture. Don loves to hear the sound of people slurping their phở in the Vietnamese way. It says to him that they love it, and Phở Saigon.
