Imagine the lightest and clearest broth you’ve ever. With bits of onion and scallions floating just beneath the surface. Just a gentle soup so delicate you feel like it’s kissing you whenever you place it upon your lips. But wait….the soup is hiding delicious morsels within its depths. A plethora of fatty and lean meats, with a chunk of cheery rice noodles centering the entire ocean broth. The aroma wafts into your face. There is a small plate of crunchy sprouts, sour lime, aromatic basil, and fresh slices of jalapeños to accompany you on your soup journey. But whatever you do, don’t pollute your pho with the hoisin sauce and stiracha.
