Two Bowls Pho Noodle Soup (Phở Hai Tô) comes from many delicious Vietnamese Food Pho. Its taste is completely different with fried Pho or Traditional Pho. The broth has a different color with others, but in my opinion the taste and flavor is sweeter and more delicious. When you visit Vietnam, especially HCMC, make sure you will not forget to taste it.
The name of this Vietnamese Food Pho is come from Gia Lai’s province. They invented a new style of traditional Pho which is dried Pho. Gia Lai’s people call it two bowls Pho due to there are two bowls which are one broth bowl and one dried Pho bowl. Dissimilarity with traditional Pho, the dried Pho noodles is smaller than traditional Pho, but it is tougher and harder. Therefore, when add the ingredients into the bowl; the noodles will not be broken.
When bring the bowl to the customers, the noodles are boiled and put in the separately bowl. The cookers will add more scallions, chives and hash pork and shrimp on the noodles bowl. The broth is put in one different bowl; you can eat it with rare beef or some pieces of chicken. The special of this Vietnamese Food Pho is the broth is made well done. It is not too light or bold, so the customers can easily enjoy it. When eating, you need to mix the noodles with chilies sauce, black sauce, satay, lemon, chilies and vegetables like salad and herbs.
Nowadays, the two bowls Pho appears popularity in Ho Chi Minh City.
