How to Eat Pho the Right Way

Pho is a popular dish made with rice noodles and your choice of meat or vegetables, simmered in broth made from beef (or chicken or seafood) bones. It’s often topped with fresh herbs, bean sprouts, slices of jalapeno, and lime wedges. This delicious comfort food can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For those who are new to pho, it may be a little confusing to figure out the right way to eat it. Thankfully, there are some simple tips that can help you get the most out of your bowl.

Start by tasting the broth – it’s essential to the flavor of any bowl of pho. It should be rich and aromatic, with a balanced mix of sweetness, saltiness, sourness, and spice. Once you’ve had a taste of the broth, it’s time to add your other ingredients.

Traditionally, a table of pho is set up with a plate of garnishes and bottles of condiments like hoisin sauce and sriracha. This makes it easy for everyone at the table to customize their own bowls.

Grab your chopsticks and a soup spoon, and start mixing in the fresh toppings and proteins. You can use your spoon to scoop up the noodles, and then use your chopsticks to pick out pieces of meat or vegetables and put them into your mouth. Don’t be afraid to slurp – this is a common practice in Vietnamese restaurants, and it helps the flavors of the soup blend together.
