Is Vietnamese broth growing in popularity
The unofficial national Vietnamese dish of pho bo - a bowl of broth with flat rice noodles, herbs, spring onions and shreds of meat - appears to be proving popular in the UK, if the success story of one restaurant chain is anything to go by.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Pho - a group of noodle eateries established by Stephen and Jules Wall in 1995 - has grown from one diner to five, located in Brighton and London.
Ms Wall, from Durham, explained how, on a trip to the country seven years ago, she and her husband were "bowled over by the healthy, clean flavours, by both the simplicity of the dishes and the way a restaurant might serve just one dish, but do it really well".
According to the chain's website, pho emphasises the healthy, fresh and low-fat nature of Vietnam's creative cuisine, full of fresh ingredients and high in minerals and vitamins.
