Pho among top bowl foods around the world

Pho in Hanoi, Vietnam is among Lonely Planet’s best bowl food experiences across the globe.

Other bowl foods named on Lonely Planet's list are Khao soi in Thailand, Salmorejo in Spain, Arroz de marisco in Portugal, Congee in China, Ceviche in Mexico, and Ramen in Japan. 

The Vietnamese traditional noodle dish, which includes chicken and beef pho, is a perfect combination of clear broth made from chicken or beef bone, and aromatic spices, including anise, cinnamon and cardamom; fresh chicken or beef; fresh rice noodle and green onion. The distinctive-flavored dish is served with fresh lemon, chili and some aromatic herbs, and fried breadsticks. VNP
