How to cook the legendary Vietnamese rice noodle, Pho
Ok, I am going to give you some tips how to make Vietnamese noodle, Pho. Pho originated in the early 20th century in northern Vietnam, apparently southeast of Hanoi in Nam Định province, then a substantial textile market. Because of this period under French colony, so it has been said that Pho maybe the terms from France´s Pot-au-feu (beef and vegetable). First of all, for those who live in Western, just go to the nearest Asian market near you ! They have all of those ingredients. To the Korean, in Iteawon, you could find those ingredients, instead of using beef bone to cook the broth, you can use the whole chicken as well :) And if you have any question concerning about the cooking, just ask me ;).
