    Recipes would be great. The few times I've tried to make noodle dishes they've been pretty underwhelming. A majority of that may be due to the fact that I am white though... :embar:

    I think when he said charring he meant like black charring. Vietnamese do that french broth thing where you char an onion

    Iirc the word pho is the Vietnamese pronunciation of the french word feu like pot au feu (which I think means fire?)

    indesertum is right, the charring of the ginger and onions is only for the broth. I don't think there is a consensus about the etymology of pho, as there's evidence for influence from both French vocabulary and Chinese vocabulary. The method for making a good pho broth is very much like pot au feu.

    banh xeo is amazing. I'm craving it now too

    honestly if you aren't willing to commit a lot of time to it, making noodle dishes with broths won't ever turn out amazing. It's a lot of effort, maybe you can speed it up with a pressure cooker but I don't own one. The plus side is that, if you have a huge stock pot, you can spend a day to make a big ass pot of broth, eat a bowl or two fresh, and freeze the rest for whenever you're hungry. This is what I do in the winter.

    Unfortunately not an actual cooking program, it's a Japanese language instruction program where I occasionally cook while demonstrating vocab!! My request for a cooking spin-off was denied because I'm actually not that good haha

    https://cgi2.nhk.or.jp/gogaku/other/japanese/

    It's fresh shimeji mushrooms, ground daikon radish, and a konbu-based broth

    I was in HCMC earlier this year and stumbled upon this noodle place near Snail Street. Not sure what they sell cos they didn't have a menu. Had a pork rice noodle (pork pho?) and the broth was sick. I could use a huge bowl of that and bun bo hue right now.

    Went to Hakata Tonton in NYC last night, which was delicious. You get a Big hot pot and after you've eaten everything in it you add eggs and rice or noodles and they cook it down. They also don't accept tips which was interesting for America.

    Oh and the dessert was good too.
