Meet the Phorrito, cousin of the Ramenrrito (photo attached) and the latest addition to the Asian food fusion craze thanks to the LA restaurant Komodo. Komodo's sous chef Jonar Arboleda tells LAist that they use thinly-sliced Angus beef and flavor it with the spices you'd find in pho broth like cinnamon and cardamon. Then throw in lime juice, blanched bean sprouts, slices of jalapeno and onions, Thai basil, cilantro, hoisin sauce, Sriracha—and yes, cooked rice noodles. Sounds like a good deal to me, but then again, I am not a Pho purist. Any thoughts on this?
Mmmm, this reminds me that I need a day trip to LA. Pho is one of my favorites. I grew up in the OC with many mom and pop shops in the area. The broth is what makes it or breaks it for me...but I would totally dig this! Looks good! My mouth is watering :)

Pho is good on its own. I don't think I can do this.
