A broth hot tub with searing spices sounds like it might not be the best dish for the middle of a sweltering summer day, but when the sun drops down and the ocean breeze kicks in, it’s the perfect companion.
Speaking of companionship, Vietnamese cuisine has married a perfect couple: sweet and salty broth with various meats swim in a harmony of flavor. Mix in some random vegetables and sprouts and the team is complete.
It’s easy to see how the delicious dish, pho, took the world by storm, especially in recent years. There’s something about this style of soup that makes each bite more desirable than the last.
The knowledgeable staff at Pho Thanh Binh can help navigate the 98 combinations of plates.
If you’re a little more adventurous, the oxtail version of this dish is a fan favorite among local patrons.
