show me: Oh, and one of the best pho places I've been to was The Best Little Pho House in Texas, on Lamar(?) Street in Austin.
Peki: noitsnot: hoisinSpeaking of pronounciation: Is this "hoy-zin"? The French in me is too strong, the first time pronounced it "hwa-ZAN", and everyone laughed.
Kevin72: I just put Hoisin on the noodles as they are wrapped around the chopstick. I really don't add Sriracha except maybe on a noodle bite, because Sriracha really covers up the delicious broth that is deliciouser by the limesqueeze and greens addition.
noitsnot: fartacus: Gonz: I had pho for lunch today- yes, with added Sriracha- so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.//From Trader Joe's, too.Adding Sriracha to pho is for philistines - it masks the flavor of the broth. You're supposed to dip the meat in the sriracha.Do what you want, but please shut up about what I should do:1) Get Pho Dac Biet so it has every possible cow part in it (maybe even add a meatball)2) Shred up the Basil and dump it in3) All all the Jalepeno slices they gave you - rip them up if they are really big4) Add a reasonable amount of the Bean Sprouts, if they don't look E-Coli ridden5) Squeeze a good honk of Lime juice in - taste - repeat but don't go too far6) Get Sriracha bottle - wipe crust funk off nozzle - hose in a ton (about five circles around the bowl)7) Taste - add some hoisin if it needs to be a little sweeter

VivianVivisect: GWSuperfan: fartacus: Actually, it's actually pronounced "fuh".Yep- and for the folks in DC, Froggy Bottom Pub (2142 Pennsylvania, NW) has GREAT Pho. The owners are Vietnamese, and it's cheap, homemade deliciousness.In one of my meetings with the Orange County Register and the OCTA we had a social media luncheon in "Little Siagon" and our coordinator said it's "Fah", he corrected me many times.
maxheck: What I made for dinner:[i41.tinypic.com image 600x800][i42.tinypic.com image 600x800]I would never make it as a foodie. I like eating too much.
Corvus: [upload.wikimedia.org image 800x600] I'll take Bahn-mi over Pho any day.

Calmamity: This reminds me of the 5 or 6 times I tried coke in college. Friends kept insisting that I must not have liked it because I tried someone's shiatty coke and this time I was really going to like it.Great, now the back of my throat is numb and it is making me want to barf and I'm talking to an asshole about nothing. Yay?On the other hand, if any of you kids out there want to score free drugs, pretend not to like them. Your friends will go broke trying to impress you.
maxheck: FrancoFile:maxheck: FrancoFile:dabbletech: From Wiki: The broth for beef phở is generally made by simmering beef bones, oxtails, flank steak, charred onion, charred ginger and spices. For a more intense flavor, the bones may still have beef on them. Chicken bones also work and produce a similar broth. Seasonings can include Saigon cinnamon or other kinds of cinnamon as alternatives (may use stick or powder), star anise, roasted ginger, roasted onion, black cardamom, coriander seed, fennel seed, and clove. The broth takes several hours to make. For chicken phở, only the meat and bones of the chicken are used in place of beef and beef bone. The remaining spices remain the same, but the charred ginger can be omitted, since its function in beef phở is to get rid of the "cow's smell"Lovely.You know how I know you've never made stock?Having a roast chicken carcass burbling away downstairs as I write... Kick, replies.../ enjoying the rosemary-chickeney smell every time I go downstairs.See your carcass, raise you the clam risotto I'm making tonight.Yeah, but you probably didn't make a loaf of egg bread to go with it, and that trumps all. So :P / mmmm... Eggy bread baking smell...
factoryconnection: Plus, since the Seattle Times no doubt has a large chunk of readership that falls into the food hipster category, this type of article is bound to generate a lot of clicks and comments.
exick: The only drawback of pho for me is the exorbitant amount of cilantro I have to deal with. Basil, ginger, fish sauce, broth, meat, noodles are all great. And then I get to the farking forest of cilantro. Gorrammit!
OscarTamerz: Pho sucks, it's for the tards who were actually stupid enough to eat ramen and like it.[www.xuvn.com image 648x486]Banh cuon is the food of the gods. If you're ever in The OC go to little Saigon and get yourself some. It's like a super good and flavorful Vietnamese enchilada.
itazurakko: bborchar: Yeah, I'm not sure how this is much different than making ANY kind of stock. It takes my chicken stock about 4-5 hours (because I like a really flavorful broth and cook it down), but it's meat+vegetables+spices+time=any kind of stock you make.It's why "some sort of noodles in a really amazing long-simmering stock" is such a popular street food - it's really only economical to do in huge batches, but if you have high throughput, you can make the stuff really fast and really cheap. I miss noodle stalls and cheap noodle houses something fierce. Beats the heck out of standard US "fast food" any day. When it comes to Western food though a good fried chicken and fries is similar too, easy to make lots and cheap and fast if you're making it for hordes at a restaurant or booth and just keep that oil going, but at home, not so much.
brap: That's great, um, maybe you should order something else. Like something you enjoy. *ten minutes of awkward silence*What do you want a gold star sticker?
cannotsuggestaname: STOP LIKING THINGS I DON'T LIKE!
ecmoRandomNumbers: I feel the same way about sushi. I'm considered a philistine because I farking HATE fish!
ciberido: ecmoRandomNumbers: I feel the same way about sushi. I'm considered a philistine because I farking HATE fish! I hate that "fishy" taste but good ceviche does not have that "fishy" tasteat all.
tortilla burger: Pho is not a hipster food. It's very much a working man type of food; it's made with relatively common ingredients, there's little in the way of fancy cooking methods or obscure preparations. And pho is exactly the type of thing you'd eat when you're hung over and need something to pick you up. It really doesn't fit the profile of a hipster/foodie favorite
Kanemano: Pho from the best place in Hanoi, open since 1945, unmatched in the states, cost $2.50

I was justin Ha Noi this past Christmas and had Pho at least once a day. But I'd have to say my favorite meal was cooking outdoor on the sidewalk sitting on little blue stools.
moothemagiccow: KFC makes terrible fried chicken
Gawdzila: The absolute #1 soup I've ever had is my grandma's albondigas. It will never be surpassed.Pho is certainly in the close battle for second, though.On any given day it could be pho or it could be caldo de res:[s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com image 430x322]or tom kha:[hungrynative.com image 430x285]or good ole' chicken noodle:[www.davita.com image 430x288]Soup is so flippin' wonderful.
ArcadianRefugee: It's soup. Broth soup. It began as poor-people's street food. How exciting is it supposed to be?
kiwimoogle84: Thai Thom Kha soup has been one of my most persistent pregnancy cravings, I kid you not. I have dreams about that stuff.
LemSkroob: I mean, isnt it everyone's dream to move into a Vietnamese neighborhood where you can get some good authentic Pho, and drive up the rents so the Vietnamese all have to move out?
Peki: Sybarite: Mexicans pronounce burrito (buh-REE-to).Huh. Can you clarify this one? I'm from Los Angeles, and I've been sitting for the last five minutes trying to figure out what other way I hear it pronounced./CSS: Had some trouble ordering a "Baja Chicken Chalupa" from a Toxic Smell in Arkansas once. I placed my order (Baha Chicken. . ), and he goes, "Huh?? Oh, you mean with Bayjuh sauce? Okay!"
