What is Pho? - SINGAREA

What is Pho? 

Phở, pronounced "fuh," is a Vietnamese soup dish that is normally made with a bone-beef broth, banh pho noodles, and thinly sliced beef, that's often served with bean sprouts and other fresh herbs on the side. Not to be confused with Japanese ramen, which is usually made with wheat noodles, pho is made with rice noodles. 


A bowl of pho features a plethora of flavours that will awaken all your taste buds. The broth, combined with spices gives a robust, umami taste while the meat (beef of chicken) offer a chewy and slightly sweet flavour. It is topped off with the aromatic herbs such as cilantro, basil, crunchy bean sprouts, hot chiles, and tart lime, each releasing its very own unique taste. 


This hearty dish originates from Vietnam, which has been a part of history since the late 1880s during French colonization in North Vietnam. After the second world war, the simple broth dish was diversified with spices and herbs. Its popularity gradually spanned across the world and became a common street food and traditional breakfast dish in Vietman, available from every corner food stall. Traditional versions of pho can take a day or more to make to achieve a richer, robust taste with the use of fresh meat and herbs. 

Serving Suggestion 

One of the best parts of traditional pho—the fresh garnishes—requires no cooking at all, so take the opportunity to really make them shine. Seek out fresh, aromatic basil and cilantro, a variety of chiles, crunchy bean sprouts, and juicy limes, for the ideal garnishingAdding condiments such as sriracha sauce, hoisin sauce, or fish sauce adds a unique flavour to it.
