Wow! That P13 Beef Lemongrass Soup is a TREAT!
There's a new favorite soup at Phở Saigon, and it's
not even technically phở. It's a rich, spicy
treat that goes very well with any weather.
You still get your bánh phở noodles, but
the broth is much richer than phở, and the
lemongrass and many other spices make this a treat,
winter or summer. It comes with bean sprouts, basil,
cilantro, lime, and some jalapeno slices. You don't
need to add anything else to it, as it comes to your
table seasoned to perfection, and a meal in itself.
Try it and see if you don't agree that
P13 is one of the best
soups that we serve. If you prefer chicken, try
P12 Chicken Lemongrass Soup.

Ah didn't ride this fer to eat no durn SOUP!
Lots of people come into our restaurant with some
misconceptions about the miraculous Vietnamese soup
. Many people "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
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.
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).
it is brought to your table, immediately put the bean
sprouts (and nothing else) 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 dump the jalapenos on top. Then
carefully remove the basil and the cilantro leaves from
the stem and lay them on top. Now you're ready to eat
Take your chopsticks in your dominant hand, and 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. 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.
