It's filling, healthy, and fun to eat: Pho, a beef broth noodle soup that's considered the national dish of Vietnam, is made after a lengthy process of parboiling, rinsing, and simmering beef bones and adding ingredients like ginger, rock sugar, charred onions, and spices. The broth is finished with rice noodles, slices of beef, onion, scallion, giant sprigs of fresh Thai basil, and bean sprouts. Housed in an informal strip mall on the outskirts of Davie, Pho 79 offers different phos in three sizes. Try the pho ga, a combination of noodles and chicken breast. Or maybe the pho seafood, with shrimp, scallops, squid, and imitation crab. If you want more meat, there are extras; add bo vien (meatballs) or extra tai (slivers of rare steak).
