Gluten Free
After a trip to Vietnam, adding a version of Pho pronounced 'Fir' made sense. I had a beef version for breakfast eaten on the side of the street very early one morning. The dish's freshness really impacted me; tasty, clean flavours all work well together. Also, this dish is gluten-free and close to my heart. Vietnam has many versions from north to south, with chicken, beef or fish. There is even a version served with bread that is sliced and dunked in.
