All about Pho

Pho, pronounced “fuh”—not faux, is a traditional Vietnamese noodle soup. It first appeared in Vietnam in the 20th century and became so popular that it is now considered to be the national dish of Vietnam.

There’s some debate over the history of pho. Most people agree it originated around Hanoi in Northern Vietnam. Some say it was adopted from the French beef stew, pot au feu, while others consider it has Chinese influences. No matter where it came from, pho quickly gained popularity as a street food.

After Vietnam was divided in 1954, people who left the Northern region brought pho with them to the South, and over time regional variations of pho emerged.

The name Pho refers to the flat rice noodles the dish it is served with and to really enjoy Pho, it is important to understand what each element brings to the overall dish.

Broth: Traditional pho broth is made from bones and meat simmered slowly with charred onion and ginger for warmth and flavoured with aromatic spices. Whilst not traditional, we have created a vegan broth with the same principles.

Rice noodles: These flat noodles are delicate in texture and usually cooked separately to prevent them from getting mushy.We recommend removing the noodles from cooking when they still have some bite as they will soften further in the broth. For a clear bowl of pho, it is also good to rinse your noodles after cooking to remove the starch.

Protein: The protein of the dish is usually cooked separately and then added on top of the noodles before pouring over the hot broth. The exception to this is very thinly sliced steak which is added raw and cooked by pouring boiling hot broth directly on top.

Toppings: Added after everything else, this is the fun part—you can mix and match toppings to your taste. If sharing the meal, it is fun to set out a pho bar for everyone to make their own bowl.

Pho is pronounced fuh rather than foe. Don’t make the mistake of saying Pho Kits in the correct pronunciation in front of your kids!
