Our First Morning in Vietnam–Pho!

We took this photo of our first breakfast on the sidewalk in front of our hotel back in July

pho at the Hoang Yen Hotel, Phu My Hung

and I thought it would be fun to share.  The boys have loved pho from the first time they tried it.  Trevor gets his with beef, like Mike and me, and Colin gets his with no meat.  None of us chooses chicken.  There’s always a plate of herbs and bean sprouts and chilis to add to the soup.  You can also see our first cup of Vietnamese coffee, which drips into your cup of condensed milk in a slow, intense way.  Delicious.  The other cup has iced tea in it, which often comes instead of water at restaurants.  It’s green or jasmine tea and not sweetened.




  1. That looks amazing! I’m convinced that Pho is the most delicious thing in the world!

  2. Come on it’s just noodle soup. What makes pho so good? Can’t wait to find out! This is one of those photos where it’s neat to look at all the details in the larger version.

  3. love that Bruce’s hat travels to such interesting places!
