Pho is probably the most famous Vietnamese dish. If you’re a tourist or expat in Vietnam, then you've probably explored street food

The secret of phở is its broth, which ranges from light flavours to rich layers of tastes with essence of cinnamon often standing out. Phở is customisable: add fresh herbs like basil and spearmint, hot chilli and black bean sauces, garlic, fresh chillies, and bean sprouts to your liking. This beef noodle soup can also be made with chicken. But what if you’re vegan? Don’t worry! There’s such a thing as vegan pho too! You can find pho anywhere in Saigon and all over the country. How about you dive in and try each kind?
