To know pho is to know Vietnam. Vietnamese love it, savor it and depend on it from the time they wake up until the last meal of the day. It’s simple yet complex and includes unexpected treasures. Each local connoisseur of pho has a favorite location. You see them time and time again and say hello as you enjoy your favorite lunchtime staple. Every kitchen has its own take on pho, but boiled down to the basics it’s a bowl of hot chicken stock with rice noodles and a bit of meat. In one word: delicious!
