The Vietnamese eat ph for breakfast
Phở - the delicious noodle soup from Vietnam
What is Phở and why is it so popular
You have probably heard of Phở before. This is the national dish of Vietnam: a delicious, rich noodle soup.
There are two variations of traditional Phở, Phở bo with beef or Phở ga with chicken. But now there are also vegetarian and vegan options. Phở is served in a bowl and is filled to the brim with rice noodles and meat. The soup is served with a selection of vegetables and herbs, such as coriander, leek, lime, bean sprouts, mint, chilli and Vietnamese basil. The meat makes the broth very tasty and strong. The trend is now spilling over to Europe; Phở is usually eaten here as lunch or dinner.
Traditionally it is breakfast in Vietnam, but there are enough Phở stalls in the streets of Vietnam and Phở food stalls or restaurants that offer Phở for eating all day.
Because Phở is such a popular and delicious food, we asked our Vietnamese agent Johnny, on the right in the picture, what his favorite Phở recipe is and he told us his mother's recipe.
Johnny's recipe for traditional Vietnamese Phở:
For the broth:
- 2 cloves of ginger
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 3 tbsp sunflower oil
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons of cane sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 cardamom pods
- 1 star anise
- 1.5 l beef, chicken or vegetable broth
For the deposit:
- 200g flat rice noodles
- 200 g beef fillet, chicken fillet or tofu
- 2 limes
- 1 bunch of spring onions
- 1 bunch of mint
- 1 bunch of coriander
- 200 g mung bean sprouts
- 1 chilli
At will: Fish Sauce & Sriracha Sauce
- Peel the garlic and ginger and cut into thin slices.
- Simmer the oils and spices together with the garlic and ginger in the broth for 1 hour.
- Wash and cut herbs. Cut the chillies and limes.
- Cook rice noodles according to the instructions and cut the meat into thin slices.

By the way, to honor Phở there is an official day of Phở and that is December 12th. Then at the latest it is time for you to cook your own Ph at home. Or travel together with Djoser on one of our various Vietnam tours and taste traditional Phở in Hanoi, Saigon or other stops on the way.
