Clearly, my crush of the week this week is Pho Ga. I have had this Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup 3 times this week. I cannot get enough. I crave it daily. I have been eating it for many years, here and there, but 3 times in one week? What is the deal?!
It must be its healthy, warm, comforting goodness. I am a total fan of the broth, which actually contains fish sauce. Who would think like I would like fish sauce? I barely can choke down cooked fish. But the depth and intensity of the flavors, in a simple setting as a soup makes my heart sing!! My favorite restaurant in my area grills the chicken. Yummy! The soup also contains bean sprouts, thai basil, green onion, white onion, cilantro and jalapenos. I have yet to try and make it at home, but once I do successfully I will post the recipe. If you have not tried it yet, I highly recommend finding a good review on Yelp and making a date out of it.
