In Vietnam, Pho has traditionally been eaten as a breakfast dish. This might in part have been due to its long preparation requirements – typically more than 12 hours of simmering are required to prepare the hearthy broth. At a street stall vendor, once the pot was empty, that was it. Be early or be prepared to order from another less favoured food stall!

Other forms of Pho such as Wok-fried Pho were easier to prepare on request at street food stalls throughout the day.

Now Pho is eaten in Vietnam and the world at all times of the day of night. From an early filling breakfast to a restorative post drinking bedtime snack.
