Vietnamese pho is a bowl of soupy, flavored goodness that will chase your worries away. The broth-type dish typically contains a plethora of herbs and spices such as chili, pepper, cilantro, cinnamon, and star anise. These are mixed with stock, beef, bean sprouts, and noodles to create a surprisingly versatile dish.

The recipe has been around for centuries and can be found in any restaurant or bustling street market. It’s inexpensive to make and to buy, and if it tickles your taste buds you can even try recreating it at home. It probably won’t be quite the same, though.
