Subject:Pho-rocious!!!! Rawr!!!
Posted by:galileah_galile.
Time:3:41 pm.
My friend and I have been getting our Pho on for about a year now. Suprisingly, Phoenix AZ offers many choices for Pho action. Our favorite place is called Pho Mesa. It's amazing how addictive the stuff is. No matter where I go, I always get the same thing- Pho with tofu and vegetables. And save the tofu for the end when it's time for hot chili sauce. A couple of questions: Anyone here have a good Pho recipie that doesn't involve boiling oxtails? Is there a substitute that'll get the job done? Also, what is in fish sauce? Because it's not the same thing you buy in bottles at the store, and it varies from day to day at the place we go to (as I'm sure it varies in other areas) but just wondering how many people make pho happen as home sucessfully.
I can't believe there is a community for this-Awesome.

ok.. i love pho and i didnt know where else to turn..
off and on ever since i started eating pho, i'd get this weird sensation like my head was inflating or something.. kind of numb and pressurized. it seemed weird, but wasnt that bad and it didnt happen every single time. i tried (by trial and error) to figure out if it was the sriracha, the plum sauce, the tofu, etc etc etc but i couldnt pin it down.
i hadnt had pho for a while and i went to have it for lunch and oh my fucking god, i reacted so strongly. my whole head went numb very quickly and spread down my spine and back to my arms.. it feels almost like mild paralysis. what the hell is wrong??
has anyone else experienced this or heard of others with pho allergies? i've been tested (years ago) and i'm theoretically only allergic to milk.. sooooo i dunno.
but really, i can barely function.

Subject:Hello :)
Posted by:makale_83.
Time:10:20 pm.
Hi, my name is Mandy and I've been eating Pho for probably a good 8 months now.. I've never had pho before I met my husband. He is half Vietnamese and introduced me to this wonderful treat (as well many other Vietnamese dishes such as Goi Cuon) and his mother has made many Vietnamese dishes as well that I don't remember the names to.

Anyway, I usually always get Tai Gan Sach Bo Vien. I love lots of basil and lots of lime juice. I usually put one pice of the hot pepper in it and some bean sprouts.

I absolutely love this dish, my husband has gotten me addicted to it. Which is good b/c he loves it too and we usually have it at least once a week.

I live in the DC area so there are plenty of places to choose from, and my mom back home in Illinois recently told me they are opening up a Pho restaurant near her work! So now my whole family can enjoy pho as well. Although when my mother and brother came out and visited me a couple months ago, my brother thought it was disgusting. (I think he didn't like the whole idea of eating tripe.)

All in all I am very happy to see this site, and other people that like pho as much as I do! :)

I am confident that there are many pho lovers who don't have the Seattle community friended. If that is the case, y'all may have missed this:


Mmm. What a dreamy license plate.

Subject:Question about bánh tầm
Posted by:jackbishop.
Time:5:05 pm.
I'm a tremendous fan of Vietnamese cuisine of all sorts, and one of my favorite dishes is bánh tầm bì, but it occurs to me, as an ignorant white boy, that I might be committing cultural sins with regard to my mode of consuming this delight. How is one supposed to use the coconut milk/cream? I always just pour some of it (not the whole dish) over top of the noodle bowl, since I don't know what else to do with it, and I enjoy the flavor of doing so, but is there something else which is traditional? (I also pour the nuoc cham, to the chagrin of dining-companions less enamored of fish sauce). I know that nuoc cham is usually meant as a dipping sauce, and even though I can't imagine bánh tầm as a dippable, I'm constantly unsure whether what I'm doing is somehow a gaffe.

On a related note, is there any sort of rule on which of coconut milk or thick coconut cream is more appropriate to the dish? I've had it both ways and have a personal preference for the cream, which makes for a less soupy bottom of the bowl, but is there one way it's usually done?

Subject:Just joined!

Mood: happy.
Hey everyone!

I just joined so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Kim and I've been Pho-ing for about 2 years now. I think I've been to about 12 or so different restaurants and my favourites so far are Pho Hoa and Pho Rex.
I usually order the salad rolls (and I adore the peanut sauce) and other the seafood pho, the "everything" beef pho, or sometimes I order the vermicelli shrimp & vegetable bowl (I forget the name of it).
I have some pho eating pictures somewheres, I just need to find them and I'll post them soon!

Sorry. Deleted last entry. In other news, planning on making chilled spring rolls. Yummy. I usually order them as an appetizer when I get pho.

I'm lucky to have a fantastic Pho joint like, 5 minutes from my house. I like mine with extra lime, extra basil, NO cilantro, and two squirts of Saracha Hot Sauce. I eat the bean sprouts on the side.

I'm curious...cuz there are so many ways to doctor your bowl up....tell me...how do you make your bowl of Pho up?

my wonderful friend from back home, kevin, had never had pho before. It's a phocked-up world when there's not a pho place for hours... and that is his current state. However, he thoroughly enjoyed it when he visited this weekend. Raege on the left, me on the right.

the pho-ree amigos

(yeah... that was a stretch. so what.)

So, who moderates this community, anyway???

Also, does anybody know any good (or any at all) pho places in downtown seattle? There's a place opening soon on 2nd, but I can't think of any others.
Help would be awesome.
