‘Pho’ is possibly one of the things I miss most about my many years spent living in Hanoi.
Many claim the staple breakfast dish was created from French inspiration, while the soup also has undertones of Chinese cuisine. For me, the history is fascinating, but much less important than the taste.
I say breakfast dish as you rarely do see people eating pho at night - something I've always wondered about. For me, the soup is so delicious I could eat it any time of day.
At the end of last year I wrote a blog about pho - yes I am THAT besotted with the sensational soup.
