How to eat Pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup, the right way!
We've all been eating Pho, Vietnamese beef noodle soup, incorrectly. Apparently, it's not as easy or intuitive as we thought! Being a Pho lover, I was shocked to learn that I've been eating it incorrectly all these years. I thought I was an amateur Pho expert, but after watching the video posted below, there;s a lot I need to learn!
Like most people, I love to douse the soup with Hoisin sauce and Red chili paste and dive right in! According to Vincent Kha, of Pho & Cafe Anh Hong in Upper Darby, PA, the dousing technique is all wrong! The correct way to eat Pho will enhance the soup's flavor, which makes for a finer dining experience.
Check out the video below from YouTube Channel Munchies and learn to eat Pho from a TRUE Pho expert! Learn, and then go taste for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!
