a friend on facebook asked me if it was true that Pho Bo is a glorified version of ramen noodles. i have to say that i reacted rather badly to the question. a simple not true would've sufficed. more than likely the person who put that thought in my friend's mind hasn't had a proper bowl of pho. sucks for him.
i started the cooking process on a friday night. skipped saturday and chowed down sunday night. i even bought a brand new pot to make the stock. i now have the broth stored in the freezer for when i have a hankering for homemade pho bo.
