Pho - Noodles

Recommended Posts

Pho_in_Saigon.jpg

Pho is the most popular food among the Vietnamese population. Pho is commonly eaten for breakfast, although many people will have it for their lunch or dinner. Anyone feeling hungry in the small hours of the morning can also enjoy a bowl of hot and spicy pho to fill their empty stomachs.

Like hot green tea which has its particular fragrance, pho also has its special taste and smell. Preparations may vary, but when the dish is served, its smell and taste is indispensable. The grated rice noodle is made of the best variety of fragrant rice called Gao Te. The broth for Pho Bo (Pho with beef) is made by stewing the bones of cows and pigs in a large pot for a long time. Pieces of fillet mignon together with several slices of ginger are reserved for Pho Bo Tai (rare fillet). Slices of well done meat are offered to those less keen on eating rare fillets.

The soup for Pho Ga (pho with chicken meat) is made by stewing chicken and pig bones together. The white chicken meat that is usually served with Pho Ga is boneless and cut into thin slices. You could consider Pho Bo and Pho Ga Vietnam's special soups. Pho also has the added advantage of being convenient to prepare and healthy to eat.

There's already a thread on pho in the international food forum: Click Here. Thai guaytiow naam is good but is completely different from pho IMHO.

Is there a noodle shop or roadside vendor anywhere selling these pho noodles in Chiang Mai?

I'm not looking for an airconditioned style restaurant, something cheap and tasty, no frills. Any clues?

There is no decent Pho here. The closest you can get is the Thai noodles with sen lek. The Thai boat noodles are pretty good.

Just recently,we have come accross two places. The first is opposite the Mee chok Rimping, a small place and pretty average, don't know if they we're proper pho. The second I really like, they serve kway jab(don't know if these are pho noodles) and have about another 6 items on the menu. Very basic, opposite the Princes college on Kaew Nawarat road about 30metres on the right before Buds ice cream corner.
