As Anthony Bourdain once said on his No Reservation episode in Vietnam, ‘I would burn cities to the ground for a bowl of this’ and I think, I would too.
Pho is pronounced fer or fur and it is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, flat rice noodles called bánh phở, a few herbs, and meat. Pho is a popular street food in Vietnam and considered to be a national breakfast. It is primarily served with either beef or chicken.
It was a cold winters day here in Sydney and nothing would’ve been more perfect than a bowl of wet and spicy Pho. So a few friends and I took the day off and headed off to An Restaurant in Bankstown, Sydney. No matter what day of the week it is, this place is always busy.
A must order is Pho topped with beef and chicken and ask for an egg or two in there. Add your bean sprouts, basil, fresh chilli flakes, a squirt of sriracha or chilli sauce, squeeze some fresh lemon, toss it through and bam! A bowl of heaven.
For dessert, there are two and we ordered both. Three colour bean sweet filled with coconut milk is freaking amazing and refreshing and by far, my favourite.
An Restaurant is located at 27 Greenfield Parade, Bankstown NSW 2200
