than Bún Khô, our traditional noodle bowl!

it gets hot almost every day there. You will also see
people eating the popular
bún (rice vermicelli) bowls everywhere: in

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.

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 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).
How to eat phở

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
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
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.
