Pho is a dish that has existed for a long time, maybe no one knows exactly when this dish has been available ever since. However, only today, Pho has been present everywhere, from small roadside eateries to big and luxurious restaurants and hotels.

I have enjoyed Pho in many places along the North to the South, and have also been reading through many secrets of processing Pho. It is undeniable that serving a true Vietnamese true Pho is incredibly feat, sometimes it takes 8-10 hours to complete. A good Pho first of all must have a soft, chewy noodles, soft feeling, not friable. Next we have to mention the broth - the ingredient that is said to be the most quintessential and the most elaborate. The water is stewed from cow bone, grilled ginger, grilled onion, grilled onion, grilled star anise, grilled cardamom, pungent paste, cinnamon stick and spices are carefully and carefully tasted. The broth will even be simmered for 8 - 10 hours and must be filtered through to get clear, odorless beef. In contrast, it is very rich and has a very unique flavor. It is not complicated to hear how to cook, but actually to cook a pot of broth like that requires extremely skilled and experienced.

To the stage of enjoying Pho, sometimes it is so sophisticated that it has been likened to "the art of using Pho". First arrange Pho noodles first, then the beef or tendons, encrusted, dandruff ... next to the layer of finely chopped scallion, then use the broth. When eating, must pick up more coriander, then add a little garlic soaked, vinegar, black soy sauce, chili and squeezed more pieces of lemon, that's really Pho. Lacking a little taste or material is hard to get a round bowl of Pho.


Because of different quality and brand, Pho in our country is also sold at very different prices. There are simple Pho restaurants with only 20,000 - 25,000 VND / bowl, but there are also places that count 50,000 - 60,000 VND / bowl, even some up to over 100,000 VND / bowl. Tourists come to Vietnam often jokingly say that, when coming to Vietnam without eating Pho, it is considered as just arriving and not yet seeing the essence of cuisine here.

Pho is also a dish that has been recognized as one of the most attractive dishes in the world by Chefs, experts as well as foreign magazines and TV stations, worthy of the position of "soul" in culinary. Vietnam, bearing the Vietnamese name, is clearly defined on the world cuisine map.

As a Vietnamese, growing up in the scent of rice fields, loving the scent of salty sea scent, appreciating the aroma of rice, and having enjoyed Pho, I feel more in love his country. Pho is just like the soul of each of us, there is simple but still extremely delicate. I always hope that the secrets of cooking Pho will always be respected, handed down, preserved and promoted properly so that Pho will always be forever and forever. At the same time, Pho as well as many other Vietnamese dishes will become more and more popular, promoted more as one of the beauty of our country's culinary culture.
