You hungry? Ya! What joo hungry pho? Phoya? Phoshizzle… I dunno – I think they think they’re really clever with this one. So I’ll review it pho ya….
Here’s the specs…
From left to right we have an extremely well filled pack of dry seasonings, then veggies and finally some seasoned/infused oil. It’s definitely got onion in it but a little piece looked like a bee’s wing! Pretty neat.
Flat rice noodles topped with insanity! I’m hoping this’ll be a good one!
Click image to enlarge. The finished product. I’ve had pho before; the real thing. This doesn’t even come close – here’s why. First, the noodles in pho are usually strands and not broad. Second, the broth has a richness that a little packet of oil can’t bring to life. Thirdly, sweet basil is a flavor that’s enjoyed throughout the dish and this stuff hasn’t got even a hint of it. Now if I hadn’t ever had pho and I was reviewing it on it’s merits alone (which is how I’m going to rate this), I would say the noodles are mushy, the broth is extremely greasy and almost goopy in its thickness. Disappointing. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.
This is how Pho Ga is made – great recipe!
Here’s some Thanksgiving news…
What a find – NBC’s coverage of the first shuttle flight!
