Pho is probably the most recognizable dish from Vietnam—this noodle soup with its complex broth and exotic herbs, truly represents comfort in a bowl. First appearing during the mids, this dish is heavily influenced by Chinese and French cooking. Some believe that the name is a Vietnamese corruption of the classic French pot au feu, a slow-cooked beef stew. Though the true origins are murky, it is commonly accepted that the Hanoi region is the birthplace of pho, known locally as pho bac.

Pho Bowl Menu
Pho originated in the early 20th century in northern Vietnamand was popularized throughout the world by refugees after the Vietnam War. Because pho's origins are poorly documented,   there is disagreement over the cultural influences that led to its development in Vietnam, as well as the etymology of the name. Chicken pho appeared inpossibly because beef was not sold at the markets on Mondays and Fridays at the time. Pho, previously unpopular in the South, suddenly took off.
For over a decade, Tasty Garden in Bethlehem served take-out to the masses. The restaurant is now Pho Bowl, a place that speaks deeply to me as its namesake is one of my favorite dishes. The restaurant, which opened in mid-January, is owned and operated by husband and wife duo Bernard Suparamany and Thuy Nguyen and features a selection of Thai and Vietnamese specialties.
