Yay! You did it. Now that you can say it... you don't have to be afraid to eat there. If you still need a little more information, keep reading.
First, Phở Bac Hoa Viet specializes in a soup called Phở. Phở is a traditional Vietnamese beef noodle soup, served with fresh basil, saw leaves, bean sprouts, and green chiles.
Phở was first enjoyed during the mid-1880s. It has both Chinese and French influences. The noodles and spice components were derived from China, and the French introduced the red meat. The French also had something to do with the name. The French have a soup called "pot au feu", so when the Vietnamese cooks blended the Chinese, French and native influences together, Phở was born!
Phở came to the United States around 1975, when refugees began to flee Vietnam and head to the United States, bringing with them their food and culture.
Now, PhởBac Hoa Viet not only makes UN PhởGETTABLE Phở, *har har*, but also serves cuisine with heavy Chinese influence. In fact, some of the food I have tried there is almost identical to Chinese food.
Here are some things I have ordered--the Won Ton Soup and the Chicken Chow Fun (pictured below):
One of my favorite things on the menu is probably the spring roll appetizer. It comes with 2 large rolls (cut into 4 pieces) and a side of peanut sauce for dipping.
