Review on Pho
Juliette Nelson and Stephen Wall got hooked on 'pho' during a trip to Vietnam, so they decided to drop out of their careers in marketing and set up a neighbourhood café-cum-takeaway in London devoted to this archetypal national dish.
Pho (pronounced 'fur') is an almost embarrassingly healthy brew, consisting of flat rice noodles in long-cooked hearty stock, jazzed up with spices, then embellished with all manner of toppings and great bunches of fresh green coriander and other herbs. 'Vietnam in a bowl,' they call it.
Apart from huge bowls of the eponymous soup, you can also get a few additional items such as 'bun' (a salads of rice vermicelli noodles and prawns with a fiery dip of chillies, fish sauce and garlic), 'cari' (curries), 'banh xeo' (Vietnamese crêpes), 'banh mi' ('sandwiches') and variations on the spring/summer roll theme. Space is at a premium in the pint-sized dining room, so the owners only arrange bookings for parties of more than five people. There is a second branch at 3 Great Titchfield Street, W1.
