Chicken Pho

by Petroleum Wholesale

Pho. It’s like comfort in a bowl. This is the Vietnamese version of Chicken Noodle Soup with a better depth and a different type of flavor. The great things about Pho is the great variety it offers.  With all the different toppings you can add, every person’s bowl at the table can be a little different. We of course recommend using ALL of the possible toppings…but some people might just want some crispy fried shallots and spicy jalapeños. Make it your own and enjoy!
