How do I reheat leftover fried rice?

Just a little sprinkle of water will do ya! Drizzle 1 or 2 tablespoons of water over the fried rice, cover and microwave. The time will depend on how much you have leftover, but start in 30 second increments. Flip/toss/stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until it’s as hot as you like it!

What’s the right way to eat Pho?

The way you enjoy it most! Even amongst members of the same family you’ll see personal preferences all around the table. Our suggestion? Try it different ways and see what fits you!

  1. Keep the raw onions on the side so you get the cold bit of onions with the warm slurpy noodles.
  2. Mix hoisin, sriracha, and a few squeezes of lime into a dipping bowl (add jalapenos if you can take the spice). Use this to dip your meat pieces instead of squeezing sauces into your bowl.
  3. Try different combinations of toppings to get different textures. Open the door and try something new!

Why is Eye of Round served raw?

Traditionally Vietnamese people love this lean cut of meat sliced super thin and raw. It is amazingly tender when cooked ever so quickly by the hot broth. 

The Viet Way: Ask for it on the side so that it doesn’t sit in the broth for too long and get overcooked.

What is Skirt Flank?

A beloved but extremely tough and gristly cut from a cow. It is commonly used in Asian dishes and requires a long cook time. While not a well-known American cut, it is highly prized among Asian cuisines for its chewy characteristics. Not to be confused with flank or skirt steak!

The Viet Way: A bit of skirt flank, a bit of eye of round, tripe and Viet meatballs gives your bowl great texture and flavor.

What is Tripe?

Yes it’s true, tripe is the edible stomach lining of the cow and loved for its chewy calamari like texture. While today we readily discard parts we don’t want, back in the day all cultures used everything they could and found amazing recipes to respect the life the animal had given.

Why is your beef bone broth so special?

From beginning to end it takes 48 hours to develop the deep flavor of our Pho broth. We roast ALOT of bones and simmer them overnight. Then we add meat to pump up the beefiness of our stock. A little bit of sugar, salt and a whole lotta spices. That’s it. No bouillon cubes here people.

The Viet Way: Ask for “Nuoc Beo” and add it to your bowl. We skim all the fat from our broth to make our bowls healthier, but the fat is also where all the meaty flavor is. Try it the Viet way and see for yourself!

What kind of bones are best for Pho?

Beef Knuckle. It’s the bee’s knees! Well technically it’s the cow’s knees but it’s full of marrow and cartilage which is full of good nutrients that happen to be tasty too.

Why do you recommend take-out broth to be cold?

Physics. Hot broth just doesn’t stay hot in a plastic or wax cardboard container. Lids must have holes to let the steam out, and plastic lids are never as secure once the steam “softens” it, so leaks and spills happen. And by the time you get home, you have to rewarm the broth anyways. We find that most people prefer to take the broth home cold and secured. But of course, you can still choose hot broth for take-out!

What is the difference between Bean Curd and Tofu?

Bean curd, also known as tofu skin, or yuba, is a product of boiled soybeans. While simmering, a film or “skin” forms on the liquid surface which is then skimmed and dried. You’ll find bean curd sheets on dim sum and sushi menus, but here we go the crunchy route. Ours is seasoned and fried! As a surprising treat, try it in your pho bowl. Adds a beautiful crunch to those slippery chewy rice noodles. 

Tofu is made from soybeans that are ground in water, heated and pressed. Tofu uses a coagulant to hold it’s form
