Don’t worry, I haven’t totally lost my grammar skills, nor did I begin to write slang…

Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is a delicious “street-style” Vietnamese soup made up of meat and broth (chicken or beef), rice noodles, and savory spices. This soup is usually topped with fresh bean sprouts, basil, mint, and a hint of lime.

So, why exactly am I ranting about Pho?

Well, one, because it’s delicious… And two, because it’s great for chasing away those unwanted winter flu bugs going around.

I know, I know, abuela taught you to eat your “sopita de pollo cuando tienes catarro o estas resfriado,” but if you’re too sick to cook… I suggest you try out this alternative soup. Pho is hearty, healthy and scrumptious; and after today you’ll know my favorite and the best Pho restaurants in Miami.

Ready to place your order and say goodbye to the flu? Here are a few tips before you begin…

  1. Be sure to spice up your broth. The restaurant should bring you a separate plate with sprouts, mint and lime. Add it all!
  2. Taste it to perfection. Once you’re done adding the herbs and veggies, be sure to also add a little bit of Sriracha (red chili pepper sauce) and Hoisin sauce (black plum sauce.) Taste it as you go along, that’s half the fun.
  3. Last but not least, use a fork to help you eat the delicious hearty meats and noodles, but don’t forget to sip the wonderful broth in between bites.


Mmmm, now I’m hungry. Enjoy your Pho!
