Travel treats: Pho, Vietnam


A warm noodle soup is a great dish that strengthens the body while warming the heart (and tummies) of eaters worldwide. One of these healthy, oriental noodle soup dishes is Pho, native to the land of Vietnam. From its flavorful soup, crisp greens, and slurpable noodles, there’s a lot to like about this Asian dish.


This tasty meal consists of beef or chicken broth, rice noodles (bánh phở), a variety of vegetables, herbs, and a bit of lemon juice. It is often described to have a very clean and refreshing flavor and has been eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner by the Vietnamese people. Surprisingly, Pho has been considered a type of street food, despite its filling portions and preparation. It’s a taste sensation that delights and clears the palate.
