Pho

Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup typically made with beef broth, rice noodles and meat, and flavored with spices like Saigon cinnamon, star anise, ginger, fennel, onion and cardamom. It’s a popular street food, and can be eaten for any meal—even breakfast. Pho is served with plenty of fresh greens, herbs and vegetables, along with hoisin sauce or chile paste. We especially love chicken pho with lots of crunchy bean sprouts, sweet basil, lime wedges and thinly sliced jalapenos. Find this recipe and more in our spicy guide to pho.

Food & Wine: DIY Chicken Pho
DIY Chicken Pho
When a Vietnamese Restaurant called Bunker opened across from a scrap-metal yard in Ridgewood, Queens, its beef-and-noodle pho became a hit. But chef Jimmy Tu quickly realized he had neither the time nor the space to make enough beef broth to meet demand. So he switched to a quicker but just as rich-tasting chicken pho. He builds flavor in stages, adding pan-roasted shallots and onion and then toasted spices and goji berries to the broth as it simmers. The result shows just how much he learned from his mother and aunt, and from the chefs he trained with at Manhattan’s Montrachet and Eleven Madison Park. 46-63 Metropolitan Ave.; bunkervietnamese.com. —Tina Ujlaki
