Pho is a Vietnamese beef noodle soup dish and appears to be one of the staple items at all Vietnamese restaurants. It is a popular street food in Vietnam and is consumed at all times of the day – for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between meals. The quality of the broth and the beef are keys to the tastiness of this dish. The broth is prepared by simmering beef bones, charred onion, charred ginger and spices for many hours. Flavoursome broths coupled with the quality of Australian beef may be the reason why this noodle soup is so popular here.

In the city area, Adelaide Pho at Waymouth Street is synonymous with pho. When we mentioned to friends that we were having pho for dinner, their first question was 'At Adelaide Pho?' My mother's colleague claimed that their pho is the best in Adelaide.

Compared to Adelaide Pho, Pho S.A at Currie Street is a new kid on the block. However, it is very popular with the lunch time crowd in the city, helped no doubt by its more prominent shop front and proximity to the tall office blocks. Apart from these two restaurants, Pho is also available from stores along James Street and at food courts in the shopping centres.

Located near Central Market, an area more known for Chinese restaurants, Thanh Thanh Vietnamese Restaurant at Field Street used to be the one place to go for pho when at Gouger Street. However, Yen Linh Vietnamese Restaurant has recently opened a branch along the same street.

In the suburbs, Yen Linh Vietnamese Restaurant at Days Road, Croydon Park appears to be the favourite. This restaurant is busy no matter what time of the whole day we visited the place.

If you happen to be shopping at Centro Arndale and feel like having a bowl of pho, then head to Khangs Noodles at Arndale Street, Kilkenny.

A tiny restaurant at the junction of Hanson Rd & Sixth St going by the name of Ba Ria II, is where many of the Vietnamese go. Always packed at lunchtime with Vietnamese, Chinese, and true connoiseurs of traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Many imitators but none quite make it.

I can't help but agree Adelaide Pho in Waymouth St without a doubt is sensational and their Chicken Laksa is my absolute favourite. I promise myself to try something else each time, but just can't stop myself from ordering Laksa yet again! Margie
