What is Pho? 

Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup dish consisting mainly of broth, thin or linguine-shaped rice noodles called "bánh phở", some herbs, and meat, typically served with your choice of beef or chicken. However, this is only one of the many, great dishes offered at our restaurant. 

How To Eat A Bowl Of Pho Like A Pro! 

First, there is no wrong way to eat a bowl of Pho. However, if you want to look like a Colorado Pho connoisseur. Let us walk you through the process. Assuming you are right-handed it goes a little something like this. 

  1. The bowl of Pho arrives
  2. Plastic chopsticks in hand (in this case right hand)
  3. Soup spoon in the left hand
  4. Sip the broth first with your soup spoon while you work in the noodles with your chopsticks. Siping is totally OK! It is even OK, and preferred, that you stick your face right in up to the bowl while slurping. The best part is you will get a hit of the amazing aromatics while avoiding unwanted splatter.
  5. Once the noodles are gone (they typically go first), feel free to raise the bowl right up to your lips with both hands and polish it off. This is not impolite. This is how a pro will finish a bowl of pho — like a child would finish a bowl of his or hers favorite cereal.
