Vietnamese Food


"Pho," Vietnam's staple soup and signature dish, began taking the U.S. by storm in the 1990's and Spokane embraced the movement. While the essential ingredients remain the same—broth steeped for hours with beef or chicken bones, tender meat cuts, and noodles—the delicate balance of spices and nuanced preparation make each restaurant's dish unique. For aficionados, the search for the perfect bowl of Pho is half the fun. Here, family-owned joints like Vina Asian Restaurant, Three Sisters Vietnamese and Chinese, Pho Van and Pho City offer time-honored signature recipes for enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
