I love bringing my favorite flavors and recipes from around the world back home with me and anytime I can make an international dish at home it makes me happy. So when I tried to make Pho I knew it would be amazing and I couldn't wait to see what my family thought. The flavors of Pho are just amazing and it's a dish you will never forget. While it does require a few more ingredients than other dishes it is well worth it and you'll be so thrilled to taste this amazing dish straight from your kitchen!
