To each their own. I prefer to have the soup by itself, since the flavour of the broth is one of the main components of pho. If I add a bunch of hoison and siraccha to it, they all taste the same.

^ x2. I just mix the sauce in a sauce dish and dip the meat. What makes the pho different from place to place is the soup, then the portions, other then that it's noodle with sliced beef or chicken lol.

My go to pho place is 33rd and main, Bon cafe.

+1 to to each their own.

Like I said I used to have it plain and I totally understand why it should be eaten as is, but I think it goes well with the soup. Kinda like soy sauce enhancing the flavour of certain fish (sushi), but its not for everyone.

I used to put loads of hoisin and siracha in the soup but now I use it seperately.
Only for dipping in meats and putting some on my spoon of noodles.

I agree, my wife is Viet and she always put it in mine. She said it enhances the flavour of the broth and that's how it's eaten traditionally.

I hate hoisin sauce, its only for Peking duck and that's it haha.

For the longest time I avoided adding the lime and the herb leaf. I thought it was weird putting an uncooked plant branch in my soup.

It wasn't til I had a Vietnamese co-worker who insisted that I try the leaf that I realized it really does enhance the flavor.

my ex used to drench hoisin and siracha in both pho and bun bo hue.. wtf? lol. gross
traditional way is to enjoy and savour the broth itself!
Only time you should be adding any sauce in is when it's not as good as it should be... haha

Bowl of pho:
1. Ask for side of raw steak thinly slice.
2. Squeeze lime over the beef.
3. Dip the raw beef in mix of siracha and hoison. You're welcome.

Even better if you make pho at home, put the steak in the freezer for 10min before serving. Damnnnn,

^ Just from sheer ingredients I would say Xu Hue is authentic.

Been to that place in the last month or two, and it takes an acquired native Asian palette for those dishes.

On the other hand, I have a very western approach to food. Add tons of sauces till until it's a punch to the face with flavour. It's the same story with North American pasta and pasta sauce. In Italy, pasta sauce is supposed to be like a condiment, like ketchup. But in NA, it's lathered on like fish sauce and com ga.

By tons of sauce, I would say, till the broth is grizzly bear brown.

I've heard Mai's in Langley is supposed to be really good. Have yet to try it. It could be the same story with Pho Stanley in Delta, pho place in a white neighbourhood is bound to get good rating from the exoticness factor.
