Our Food: The inspirations of our dishes aren’t wholly Vietnamese. You may have guessed: influence is from the many of years of Chinese domination and as well as French colonialism in Indochina. Vietnamese food is a true crossroad of cultures, incorporating cooking methods and ingredients from both cultures.

TIP: How to eat Phở ?
The best way to eat Phở is steaming hot. Phở is usually eaten with both chopsticks and a spoon as phở lovers want to be sure to enjoy every drop of the rich and satisfying broth. We know it can be difficult eating the delicious noodles without dripping broth or noodles down the front of you, but it takes practice. Take off your glasses if you’re wearing any, they will steam up and become useless anyhow. Tie back your hair in a pony-tail if it’s longer. Hope that you’re not wearing a pristine white shirt, there’s a splatter factor here. Spoon in one hand, chopsticks in the other. When one discrete mass of noodles can be lifted with a piece of meat and sprouts, hoist away! Chow down like wildfire! Scoop a little broth in the spoon and voila! Each sip of the beefy broth will sooth your soul. Happy slurping!
