Pho Ga (Chicken Pho of Hanoi)

It is the complex and diversified culinary talents that have contributed to Hanoi chicken pho's being a dish that captivates diners all over the world. Because Vietnam is known for its wet rice civilization, its people have developed a variety of methods to transform rice into everyday dishes such as rice, sticky rice, porridge, and rice noodles (from rice flour). Noodle cakes, in particular, are early twentieth-century delicacies made from rice flour.




Hanoi Chicken Pho overview

After the defeat of France in Indochina and the division of Vietnam into two parts in the mid-1950s, Pho invaded Central and South Vietnam. The Vietnamese from the north began to have variances when they came to the south in 1954, carrying pho and pho.

The concept of chicken pho originated by coincidence in the 1950s of the previous century (there are also documents saying chicken pho appeared earlier, in 1939). The benefits of chicken pho outweigh those of beef noodle soup. Beef broth is always sweeter and more flavorful than chicken broth.




Hanoi Chicken Pho making process

Thin noodles, sliced or shredded chicken meat, and a light and fragrant broth make up a bowl of Hanoi Chicken Pho. It also comes with a side of spring onions. The soup is clear and tasty, with a golden color and a ginger and spice smell. The broth is sweetened by the boiling chicken bones. Furthermore, the chicken meat in the bowl of pho Ga should be tender, moist, juicy, and firm.

You'll need a complete chicken, including all the chicken parts and bones, to make the Pho Ga broth. Also required are shallots, ginger, and spices. If shallots aren't available, onions can be substituted.
