I'm actually pretty well verse in various cuisines but ironically had never had Pho.

Went to a fairly high rated pho place today with my girl to try it out and I left there with mixed thoughts.


The good:
Liked the broth and the herb mixures.

The bad:
Way too many carbs, not enough protein.

Pho seems to have this "healthy" stigma attached to it but it reality as someone who eats pretty healthy I was left feeling like shit/bloated like a pasta meal.

Here I am its getting close to dinner time now an I have a steak/shrimp/salad dinner to prepare and I still feel like I ate too much even though I didnt even finish the entire bowl of Pho.

Think I'm going to stick to Sushi for my asian type food fix.

Other food is just empty sustenance I must ingest to survive until my next bowl of Pho

Not saying it wasn't good, its just going to have to be a special occasion for me.

There's alot of variables with Pho so I'll slowly keep exploring it to find the right combo for me.

I think the average bowl of Pho is less than 50g of carbs.

I don't think that's very bad. Especially if your other meal of the day doesn't go overboard.

Yes, I love me some Pho.

I love pho. Get extra meat, eat less noodles, a could squirts of sricha sauce in there. Delicious.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:04:32 PM EST
I always get beef pho and spring for extra beef, most places do go too light on the meat for my liking.

I love pho. Never thought of it as a healthy food though. I got to a pretty traditional place and it's a little bit of rare beef in a extremely spicy broth with soba noodles. Super tasty.

Yes. 

We're getting a new Vietnamese pho place near me. Can't wait to try it out.

I usually order double meat half noodles
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:08:43 PM EST
love it, especially the beef stew with different cow parts.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:09:46 PM EST
I absolutely love Pho.

I'm a back woods country redneck living in NoVA, but you'll find me in a Pho restaurant at least once a week.

The place I go puts a ton of meat in there, almost half the bowl is meat.

Throw in a few seconds squirt of siracha and I'm in heaven.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:10:20 PM EST
I pho king love pho. 
Almost always get it with seafood, but like it with beef and tendon too. Either way, needs fresh sliced peppers and some chili sauce. Dam good stuff

You've never had Pho.

One of my favorite foods.

Beef pho with lime, mint, and a spoon full of chili garlic sauce stirred in.

Went to Vietnam 15 years ago. Been a huge fan of Pho ever since.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:20:00 PM EST
I Always get oxtail soup with the rare meat. It's usually good and only about $12 for a big bowl for two.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:21:46 PM EST
Love that stuff! My asian work buddies took me to an authentic place for lunch few years ago..... been hooked ever since

Love the beef with brisket, tendon, tripe, and the meatballs. Add a little hosin and the fried chilis. One of my favorite foods.

If you like Pho, then you should also try a Vietnamese crepe.  

Pho is awesome.  Sometimes I'll order it to go and save half of the noodles & meat to make my own soup the next day with chicken or beef broth.  I also buy a bag of bean sprouts, cilantro, and a lime from H-Mart to add the next day since I use all that they give me.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:25:54 PM EST
I get Pho with plenty of chicken in it. It makes for a hearty lunch, but, certainly not a dinner time meal. At least for me. Pho with beef usually has some fatty cuts of meat. Main reason I stick with chicken.

I did a thread on building Pho on here. It's been a while so it's probably archived. 
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:32:16 PM EST
There's a pho restaurant near us whose owners know my wife and me by name.

I was curious about it once but am now hooked to it. The hoisin sauce is great there too.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:32:52 PM EST
That is like asking if people like Fries...

Here is a hint, don't eat all of the noodles...
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:33:07 PM EST
I'd love to try it, but it is a bit intimidating.

There is a hole in the wall place up the street that has great reviews. I checked out their menu and there are so many choices.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:34:32 PM EST
Phuk yeah. Now with more tripe.
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:35:06 PM EST
It's good stuff. I enjoy making it at home 
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:35:48 PM EST
just order with extra meat and dont eat the noodles if you dont want to eat carbs
Link Posted: 4/15/2017 7:36:36 PM EST
It's nothing special.

Unless you're a big fan of tripe and other parts.

You ever have a food you love, then you eat a very bad example of that food and you never want to eat it again? Pho is one of those foods for me.

My wife and I were on a Pho kick a few years ago. My wife got the idea to try to make it herself.

The recipe she found called for star anaise. Not exactly sure if she used too much of it, or if she didn't use enough of/the right other spices to balance it out, or if maybe the recipe's creator had a fucked up sense of taste but that recipe came out tasting absolutely awful... near vomit inducing.

Won't go near the stuff now, scarred for life.
