There are a few things on my food Bucket List that I know I should have tried by this point in my life, but I haven’t. Pho was one of them. I KNOW, I KNOW!!! It’s just that, there are so many wonderful things in this city (and beyond) that it took me a bit to get around to it. There are also a million Pho spots in Philly and I wanted to make sure I started at the right one. Luckily for me, I had someone who was willing to guide me in my first Pho adventure at Pho Ha at 6th & Washington in South Philly.
I started with the #1 (Steak/Beef). First came a piping hot kettle of tea (love), then a plate of fresh herbs (love LOVE), and then the soup (INFATUATION!). I added a little hot oil, tore the fresh basil, dumped in the sprouts, gave it a healthy squeeze of lime, and off I set slurping and savoring every single drop of this incomparable dish. You could officially say, I am pho-ever changed (you knew I had to put a pun in there somewhere…)!
