Pho (Vietnamese pronunciation: "fuh") is a Vietnamese noodle soup, usually served w/ chicken or beef.  A rich, clear broth is the hallmark of a high quality pho, and while the recipe will vary from place to place, you should expect a deep beefy flavor that is accentuated by a subtle sweet twang reminiscent of the Chinese "five spice" flavor profile.  The crisp, refreshing broth makes pho the ideal summer soup, which makes sense considering the weather in Vietnam is "sauna" year-round.

Adventurous eaters will enjoy the various cow parts that are traditionally served as part of the meal: tripe, tendon, and cartilage -- the good stuff.  The flank, brisket and eye-round cuts will be more inviting to the more pedestrian pallet -- everyone wins.
Most establishments encourage the diner to self-garnish by providing a dazzling array of dipping sauces, fresh herbs and vegetables. Hoisin sauce, Sriracha, fresh cilantro & basil, bean sprouts, onions, peppers, and lime are all at your disposal.
