Always fresh and delicious. Simply Vietnamese.

Our goal is simple, to provide the best food at an affordable price.

THE ORIGIN OF PHO?

Phở, pronounced "fuh," is a Vietnamese soup that is normally made with a bone-beef broth, rice noodles, and thinly sliced beef, that's often served with bean sprouts and other fresh herbs on the side. Not to be confused with Japanese ramen, which is usually made with wheat noodles, pho is made with rice noodles. It is important to note that there are many variations of pho. The most common is pho nam, which originates in Southern Vietnam, and pho bac, which is from Northern Vietnam and considered to be the original pho. Pho Tru serves the pho nam version.

According to Cuong Hyunh, creator of lovingpho.com, it is believed that pho originates in the Nam Dinh and Hanoi regions of North Vietnam after the French colonization of the country in the late 1880s. It is believed that the word "pho" comes from the French word "feu," meaning fire, and could possibly be a Vietnamese take on the French dish pot au feu. Pho bac, the original pho, is made by boiling beef bones for several days and has a heavy emphasis on the delicate and simple broth. The broth is accompanied only by rice noodles and thinly sliced beef.  After the second world war, many people from North Vietnam moved to South Vietnam to escape the communist rule of the North. This led to the creation of pho nam. Pho nam is usually made with a broth that is seasoned with many spices and heavily garnished with fresh herbs such as bean sprouts, basil, and cilantro. Pho nam became popular in southern Vietnam and is still commonly sold by street vendors due to its convenience. After the Fall of Saigon at the end of the Vietnamese conflict, many people of the South fled to various parts of the world, allowing the spread of pho along with other Vietnamese dishes. Pho is now easily found in many places of the world and is very popular on social media.
