Pho, the traditional Vietnamese rice noodle soup, is the perfect cure for Northwest winter blues. The comforting, aromatic dish typically features a spice-heavy beef broth, flavored with the likes of charred onions and ginger, brimming with thin slices of eye-round steak, and served with fresh basil, bean sprouts, jalapeno, and lime. Tendon, brisket, meatballs, and tripe are popular additions, and chicken, seafood, and vegetarian variations are also common.
