Nobody in Sydney does a better Vietnamese beef noodle soup than Pho An
First published on . Updated on .
Widely considered to be the national breakfast dish of Vietnam, a good pho (pronounced ‘far' or ‘fur', depending on where you are in Vietnam) will have a fragrant beef broth with plenty of body and flavour. You'll also find thin slices of beef (raw, cooked or both), meatballs, or a ‘special combination pho' which is likely to have testicles in it, too. Flat rice noodles make up the bulk of the dish and it's finished with a squeeze of lemon and crunchy bean shoots with torn basil leaves strewn through (mint is increasingly offered in Sydney these days but is an inferior garnish and cost cutting method).
