Before taking in a movie this weekend, my better half, two friends and I decided to have noodles for dinner at Pho Bo Ga, Ottawa’s first, and arguably best, pho noodle house (though not my favourite).
This my “regular” at Pho Bo Ga: pho with thin slices of beef, beef tripe, beef tendon, and chunks of beef shank.
This is properly seasoned pho for my palate. The red colour comes from adding sriracha, a popular chili sauce that comes in a plastic bottle with a green cap. Bottles of sriracha are common-place on tables in pho noodle houses.
