Pho chin bo at Pho Anh, 10A Ky Dong street, District 3, Saigon. Splendid soup, tender as you like beef, spices quietly buzzing around in the background, thick cut spring onion, cilantro, coriander and fresh noodles. Been off the Pho for a while. Good to get back in the fold with this statesmanlike pho. Yes, I really do mean statesmanlike. Most Pho is thrown together without too much thought. OK – a modicum of brainpower. Noodles in first, meat on top, seasoning, soup. Whallop. But look here. I swear they’ve arranged my meat in a vaguely circular pattern.
The Circle of Pho. Hello Elton? Are you in there? This is excellent Pho. The cook tells me Pho Anh has been serving beef noodle soup from this location for 37 years. Well, it’s about bloody time they got it right. Finally. Reminds me – Pho isn’t exactly easy to make, see what I mean here. Will be back to this one. Nice. Very nice. Costs 10,000VD. More snaps.
