#TriviaTuesday - did you know that it takes over 16 ingredients to make a delicious and authentic bowl of Pho? From oxtail and beef bones (marrow and all) to star anise and rock sugar; if you’re lucky enough to live in a place where it’s possible to enjoy an authentic bowl, you should know, a lot of love went into that one bowl! And while we’re all for DIY eating, we’d encourage you to forego the shopping trip and 4-5 hour simmering process and come and enjoy the bowl we’ve made just for you.
