Something like a “phởnomenon”
· 12 July 2021
Arriving on the Saigon food scene just 12 weeks ago, Phở Chào’s 20-seater eatery has fast become one of the city’s go-to spots for dining or takeaway.
With Mama Dung overseeing the kitchen, the small restaurant produces an incredibly clean, traditional Pho from Nam Dinh using a 3-day beef-bone stock and a secret blend of roasted herbs and spices. Add to this a range of delicious traditional beef cuts, chicken for their phở, a Ragu Bo (Beef Stew), and Mama Dung’s Fried Chicken, they have all bases covered! Mama Dung’s daughter, Linh, oversees operations accompanied by legendary Saigon foodie, Will Knight, who has crafted a menu for foreigners that includes Phởtine (Poutine with Phở Gravy). Combining crunchy golden French fries with sharp cheddar cheese and smothered in a rich Phở gravy reduction, this glorious fusion of East meets West comfort food is a hit with all who try it.
