The first branch of Pho Le shop is located in Nguyen Trai street, district 5 that is the busiest street in Sai Gon. Most famous pho shops in Sai Gon gather in district 1 or district 3; therefore many people surprise that one of most famous brand of Pho Sai Gon started and succeeded right in district 5 where most Chinese people live and work.
Mr. Tai the shop owner said that Vietnamese noodle soup does not like any dish. Pho Sai Gon is sweeter than Pho Hanoi. Spices of Le pho broth use cinnamon, cardamom, amomum tsaoko (ginger-like plant) with appropriate proportion. Perhaps the owner’s own taste fit the majority’s one, therefore; any one in Sai Gon know a famous name Pho Le.
A large bowl of pho here with many ingredients: thick pieces of meat, cinnamon color broth with beef tallow, large beef balls are cut into smaller, slightly crispy and soft. A bowl of Pho is beautifully decorated with a few slices of onion, green onion and especially, onion is chopped in bend shape like Hanoi Pho for a while.
Visitors visiting Saigon often know Pho Le shop more, because most overseas Vietnamese cooks are Southern people, hence overseas Pho is also filled with full taste like pho in Saigon. There is probably no exaggeration to say that Pho Le is representative of the Southern Pho, if you visit Sai Gon and don’t try Pho Le, then you haven’t really experienced the Sai Gon cuisine.
Born in the early 20th century, the Vietnamese pho has been gone together with Vietnam ups and downs. Pho is not just simply a delicious dish but it really is becoming a “culinary ambassador” contributing honor Vietnamese culture to international friends. Pho is praised in all art forms: poetry, art, movies, theater. The dish is full of homeland’s aroma.
Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles called “banh pho”, a few herbs, and meat. Pho is a popular street food in Vietnam and the specialty of a number of restaurant chains around the world. It is primarily served with either beef or chicken.
