You gotta love this stuff!
Well, after showing you boys and girls my cooking prowess here, here, and here. I’ll let you in some exotic stuff that I myself haven’t master yet. Introducing Pho, pronounced as “fe-er”, or Vietnamese beef noodle soup.
The ingredients (as best I can tell)
- Beef brisket, sliced meat, tendon, beef balls, or other beef parts
- spring onion
- basil leaves, jalapeno peppers, lemon, and lightly boiled beans sprout on the side
- rice noodle
- awesome beef soup with some herbs and stuff I seriously have no idea
This stuff tastes awesome, and carries a different flavor from the Malaysian hawker food. It is not sweet but slightly salty, and carries a mild salty and beefy flavor. The basil leaves and bean sprouts further enhance the flavor of the soup and really add to the color too. Some Jalapeno peppers will put a kick to the soup for those who loves hot food.
I had the pho in my must-visit restaurant everytime I go to Ho Chi Minh City. It is located at District 1 and situated just behind the Renaissance Riverside Hotel. Here at Kuala Lumpur you can go to 1-U new wing and try it at the Vietnam Kitchen restaurant. However, the local pho doens’t do justice to what you can find at HCMC.
A satisfied customer. Total bill was about RM 8.00
