Pho ranks 2nd of 20 best soups in the world by CNN

The American news channel CNN has named Pho Bo (Vietnamese beef noodle soup) second on the list of 20 best soups in the world, along with China’s Lanzhou equivalent and Thailand’s Tom yum goong.

According to CNN’s description, Broth is simmered for hours with cinnamon, star anise and other warm spices to create a wonderfully aromatic base for this rice noodle soup.

The soup is considered a national dish and can be found all over the country though it originated in the north before being taken to the south, where people have added their own influences to the dish.

Pho has been getting rave reviews from global travel magazines for decades, and no visitor to Vietnam fails to mention it.

Today, beef pho remains the most beloved version in Vietnam, with options that include the original raw beef, a mix of raw and cooked beef, brisket and tendon./.
