Went to Pho Tam after class today - got the usual #1 large and it ended up pretty good; must better than last time when the beef was way overcooked.

I will be making PHO GA (chicken Pho); however, you if you want BEEF all you have to do is substitute the beef with the pho. However, the beef broth takes about 3 hours to to stand and boil. Whereas the chicken pho is 10 mins. Beef broth also tastes better the following day; however, chicken you can eat right away.

Actually, I think it is because you mentioned pho hoa.

Seriously man, if you even remotely think that place is good, you need to re-access your pho dining lifestyle.

nahh pho hoa is not the worst place but it is one of them. golden train and the place on broadway and cambie are probably worse. Have you tried the salad roll at the broadway & cambie? 1 bite and i spit it out and threw it away, it was disgusting and this dude beside our table ate 2 of them like they were good. I couldn't believe anyone can even eat that sh!t. My gf wanted them and she ate half of one and couldn't even stand it. The place is dirty too.

Pho Tau Bay in Surrey, I think its 148 st and 108 ave? I'm not too sure about the address but it's in the same complex as Subway, Macs, The donair place [which I can't remember the name of] Anyways that place is pretty good, and they open til midnight on weekends.

Pho Tam by Surrey Central was pretty good too but I haven't been there in awhile so I'm not sure if the quality has gone down or not.

Thai Son [373 E. Broadway] is great for other Vietnamese food like bun bo hue, the crepes, caramelized fish or pork and that sour soup. I'm not sure about their pho though.

If anybody's interested, I got this pho recipe from a member on another forum:

The trick to making good pho broth is this: low and slow. After you first parboil the bones to remove impurities, you want to cook it on low heat and for several hours.

Here's the recipe:

Broth:
5-6 lbs of beef shank bones, with marrow
2 lbs of beef shank meet (trimmed off silver skin and fat)
2 onions, charred on the outside, then scrape away the burnt bits. (You can cook this directly over flames for 4-5 minutes.)
1 4-5" finger of ginger, charred the same way as the onions
6 full star anise pieces
8 whole cloves
3-4" cinnamon stick
1 1.5" thumb-size piece of yellow rock sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
4-5 tablespoon fish sauce (adjust to your liking)

To cook the broth, first bring a pot of water to a boil. Put in the bones, then boil for 4-5 to let the impurities float to the surface. Dump out the pot. Make sure the bones are well rinsed so there're no loose bits.

Cover the bones with about 6-7 quarts of cold water. Add in onion, ginger, cinnamon stick, salt, fish sauce, and the shank meat. Wrap the star anise and cloves in a piece of cheesecloth, or put them in a teaball, so you can remove them later. This spice pack should be removed after about 2 hours, but you can leave it in longer if you want a more aromatic broth.

Bring the broth to a boil, then turn down to low heat. Remove the shank meat (not the bones) in about 60-70 minutes. Wrap up so it doesn't dry out, set aside.

Let the broth cook on low (or even simmer, depending on how much heat you have). The key is to not invigorate the broth too much. Skim off the scum and fat that float to the top, but do leave a bit of fat behind (it's delicious fat, man). Let it cook for 5-6 hours, but at a minimum 4 hours is needed. I find that after 6 hours, you get significantly diminished return when you cook it longer. So, longer cooking is really not necessary. That said, if you leave the broth overnight, it'll deepen in flavor.

That's it for the broth, it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Just let it cook on low, and you can go about your business, e.g. go to a local pub for a little bit.

As for the content of the bowl, I use sirloin meat (in the freezer for a few minutes, sliced thinly), beef meatballs (with tendons), beef tripe (optional), pho noodles (soak for about 30-45 minutes before cooking), thorny cilantro, cilantro, thai basil, mint, beansprout, lime, and onion (optional). (You don't need all of the herbs, but at a minimum get thai basil, beansprout, cilantro, and lime.)

Oh, if you like the tendon bits, once the both is done, take a small knife and trim off the tendon bits off the bones. (This is where I usually get my fill of tendons before other people get to them. )

------------------------------

If you've never seen pho made before, there's an extra chapter for you. After you've cooked everything, removed the bones, sliced the meats, etc.--crank up the heat and get a rolling boil going.

In a separate, smaller pot, fill with water and bring up to a boil. Take 1 serving of the soaked pho noodles, put in a strainer, then dunk in the boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until the pho is al dente. Take out, strain, put on the bottom of a large bowl.

Next, layer a few slices of the cooked shank meat, a few meatballs (cut in half), some tripe or tendon pieces (optional), then a few slices of the raw, thinly sliced, sirloin. Spoon the boiling broth over this, season with pepper if necessary. Serve.

At the table, have all the veggies (rinsed and dried), lime wedges, etc. arranged on a big plate. Have a container or a bottle of hoisin sauce, and sriracha, on the table as well. Let your guests help themselves to the veggies and condiments.

dude... there are pho places in the UK. i duno which city you're in though.

when I was in london for a few months there was no way I could go without pho.

I tried like.. 5 different places? they all were a rip off and sucked ass.

EXCEPT ONE PLACE. lol it's kinda far out, i forgot the area, and the name of the restaurant, but it was good. I'll ask my friend, she may remember but, i doubt it. anyways it was the only good pho restaurant in all of london, i swear.

and don't trust any review of any asian restaurant in england, i swear, the people there don't know what they're talking about when it comes to food.

if No 9 opened in chinatown there, they'd be the best Chinese restaurant... in all of the UK probably, i swear.
