Vietnamese chicken Noodle soup (Phở)

Hanoi Chicken Vermicelli Soup People now consider it as the traditional Vietnamses food and it is very easy to find this dish around the city.

All items will be put in the bowl – the mix of rice vermicelli with shreds fried egg, pork ham stips, Vietnamses mint, checken floss, some slices of red chili and finally the soup. The preparation for clear soups, thin omelet, super thin pork ham require quite a long time. You can fall in love with its perfect taste. Some lemon juice and shrimp paste will definitely make this dish tastier and richer

Hanoi capital in the old days, this dish traditionally prepared on the fourth day of our Lunar New Year (Tết), when we have a meal to see off our ancestor. All the left-overs in the kitchen from ham, chicken, shrimp, and pork to some veggie have been used for this dish. That is why everything has been cut into shreds.

Today, Hanoi Chicken Vermicelli Soup seems simplified a lot, from the ingredients to the cooking process, esp. in South where is far away from the origin place. This Traditional Vietnamese Food requires long preparation. How to keep the soups clear, how to make thin omelet, to cut it and Vietnamese pork ham into super thin shreds as you see from the photo. And also how to tear the cooked chicken meat into small strips, but we missed shrimp floss this time.

Otherwise our color picture would look nicer with red shrimp floss, yellow egg shreds, pink pork ham strips, green Vietnamese mint and ivory chicken floss. Soup for this dish is chicken soup base; to keep it clear during cooking process would take time and patience to do so. Among different kinds of soup for rice vermicelli I probably prefer the taste of chicken soup than the others, pork or beef.

Pho, a typical dish of Hanoi people, has been existing for a long time. Pho originated in the early 20th century in northern Vietnam, apparently southeast of Hanoi in Nam Định Province. It is a popular street food in Vietnam and Pho is the specialty of a number of restaurant chains around the world. Pho is primarily served with either beef or chicken.

Pho is traditionally served as a breakfast food, so you'll find pho sellers all over town from before dawn to mid-morning on the street. Pho is the Hanoi street food as well. It is the characteristic of Hanoi cuisine.
