What is “Pho”?
The very basics of Pho consists of broth and rice noodles. Unique flavors of pho comes from the ingredients of the broth, the consistency of the noodles, addition of meat, and how one garnishes it. Pho comes with your type and cut of meat, along with a plate of vegetables to add. The vegetables typically added are bean sprout, basil, lime, jalapenos, cilantro, white onions, and more. Sauces such as hoisin sauce, chili oil, and Sriracha can be added. The best thing about pho is that it’s a great meal for anytime of the day whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
History and Culture
The origins of pho remains contested, as its beginnings were not well documented. A reasonable estimation is that pho started in the early 20th century in Vietnam. Pho truly became popular because of the Vietnam war causing immigrants to spread around the world. Vietnamese immigrants would globalize the cuisine known as pho.
