A few months ago, I was contacted by the PR agency of an Asian cookbook “The World’s Best Asian Noodle Recipes” to share a couple of recipes from the cookbook. Being an Asian recipes cooking blog, I didn’t hesitate at all and chose two recipes to feature from the cookbook: Pho Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup) and Thai Drunken Noodles.
Whenever I go out to dine at Vietnamese restaurants, I would always order the bun, for example: bun tom/tit heo nuong (Vietnamese BBQ pork/shrimp vermicelli). I hardly order pho, mostly because I find the soup base of pho laden with lots of MSG, which unfortunately causes a reaction to my cheeks after I drink the soup. However, it all changed after I started ordering Pho Ga, or Vietnamese chicken noodle soup, which is lighter and less intense, utterly delicious nonetheless, but without causing the numbing sensations to my face!
This Pho Ga recipe is from Chef BT Nguyen of BT at Tampa, Florida. Pho Ga is not hard to make but does take quite a bit of ingredients and time to prepare. The end result feeds up to 8 people so this dish is absolutely great to share with family and friends, and hopefully a Pho Ga party is in your plan in the near future.
