Pho (pronounced 'fur') is considered to be the national dish of Vietnam, and Hanoian's are very proud to tell you it originated in their city. It is easily the most common breakfast meal in the country, and it seems that there are thousands of small street stalls and restaurants that specialise in this one dish.
If you want to start a conversation with a Hanoian, then simply ask them where their favourite pho is served, and why it's so good. We've heard locals discuss for hours at a time the flavour and fragrance of the soup broth - it's all about the broth, you see!
This little street front shop sells what we believe is some of the best beef pho in Hanoi. Once you've got a belly full of this, you'll be able to hold your own in a debate about pho with a local. It opens early and is so popular with the locals that they usually run out by 9:30am, so don't be late or you'll miss out.
