Phở is a traditional Vietnamese (beef) noodle soup made with flat rice noodles called bánh phở, herbs, and meat — either beef (phở bò) or chicken (phở gà).
Vietnamese Phở or Phở Bò is the culinary experience par excellence worth trying when visiting Vietnam. It’s probably the most famous Vietnamese dish, and now it’s your chance to try it first hand in the country of its origin. Phở Bò Chín is the version served with well-done, thinly sliced beef briskets.
