Pho is the national dish of Vietnam and is sold everywhere from nice restaurants to street corners where grandmothers set up makeshift kitchens. For this version, all of the components—noodles, beef brisket broth, herbs, chiles—are served separately. After observing the locals, I found the best method is to add just enough broth and meat to moisten the noodles for each bite and then quickly slurp it down before the fried onions and fresh herbs get soggy. Oh, and there is no Rooster Sauce (Sriracha) in Vietnam and you will look like a rube for asking for it, as I did.
