Wouldn't it be pho-natics? -X


I have read this blog entry a few times and really wish there was a way for me to be transported to Viet Nam during my kids nap(of course with a babysitter!) Michigan has been hit with a winter weather storm twice in one week. Last night with the with the wind chill, it was -28F below zero. I am clicking my red slippers as I type. I want Pho, I want Pho, I want Pho.


Xander - argh, that's what I meant to write - phonatics. Good eye! And Merry Christmas!

Life - sorry, I don't think even a bowl of Hoi An pho can help you now. I say, give in to the mean season and cook up a pot of chili. Or something like that...


Amazing pho. Can never go wrong with this soup.

yummmmm pho!!!


Doesn't anyone get squeamish at the thought of eating raw beef? I know it is doused with hot broth, but that won't kill most of the freeloaders! Don't get me wrong, I love pho, but I got used to the restaurant version served outside of Vietnam.


Been to Hoi An several times but I have never tried this before. Gotta try this one next time.

Allan, wonder when the beef is well-cooked, it can also kill the mad cow thingy?


This soup is delicious. What a great post! Another great vendor/restaurant on the cheap in Hoi An is Pho Xua at 35A Phan Chau Trinh.
