    Thank you for the Pho recipe. I used to labor for hours to make Pho and it still doesn't taste good. But I found this awesome new Pho-making kit called Happy Pho by this woman who used her grandparents' recipe to make them. They come in a box with a spice packet and a pack of pho noodles for 2 people. I was skeptical at first, but they have a simple recipe at the back that takes 15 mins. All I need to get is some chicken or beef broth and fresh ingredients, and the Pho that came out is absolutely delicious! It's also all natural and organic and made with brown rice. Check out their products here I got them from Whole Foods in SoMa. But you can also get them from I think. I've also joined their facebook page!/pages/Star-Anise-Foods/111447418877428 -- and just went to their product demo for some free tasting of all flavors. Love it!

    The Vietnamese in Melbourne seem to pronounce Pho so it rhymes with "fur " and asking for a bowl of fur always tickles my sense of humour --"was that cat or dog fur ,sir " ha ha ha

    A friend of mine tried to teach me how to pronounce Pho properly. Me, being of Norwegian descent, could not. However he did tell me to use lemongrass in it and that turned out great. So I made pho with a Norwegian accent.

    This looks awesome. When you say rice noodles do you mean like what Thai's use for pad thai?
