That’s because through the restaurant’s “Dining for Giving” program, Boulevard Grill HCMC are also connecting with non-profit organizations in the city […]

More American than Italian: Italian Food in America

Although Italian food is considered an ethnic cuisine in America, it has been adapted by mainstream American foodways ever since Italians began crossing in droves, and is now an inseparable part of American cuisine. However, the Italian food that many Americans think of as “Italian food” is nothing like the Italian food eaten in Italy … Continue reading More American than Italian: Italian Food in America

Houston: The best city for pho in the United States?

Houston: The best city for pho in the United States?


Houston Chronicle

A server emerges hurriedly from the kitchen at Pho Ve Dem on Bellaire, pushing a metal cart carrying piping-hot bowls of pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup. Patrons from an array of ethnic backgrounds are contentedly digging into their bowls, slurping up long strands of elastic rice noodles in between spoonfuls of rich, fragrant broth. (Chang, by the way, also recently declared that Houston has America's best Vietnamese food in a column for GQ magazine.) Bon Appétit named pho among the 23 Coolest Restaurant Trends of 2016. Like barbecue, poke, ramen and soup dumplings, pho has become the focus of foodie pilgrimages and late-night food runs, of endless Instagram posts and foodie debates: [...] I'll throw down the gauntlet: New pho joints are popping up in every major suburb, such as on the outskirts of New Territory in Sugar Land, where The Pho Shack is poised to open, or in Rosenberg, where construction has begun on Pho Huynh. The soup has even gone upscale at restaurants such as River Oaks District's Le Colonial, where Saigon-born Nicole Routhier - whose 1989 cookbook "The Foods of Vietnam" was seminal in helping introduce Vietnamese cuisine to New York and the rest of America - consulted on the menu. From Baytown to Tomball to Palacios, where Anthony Bourdain famously visited a bait shop/cafe for pho in his Houston episode of "Parts Unknown," pho restaurants are now as easy to find as Whataburger. When he moved to Houston in 2011 and quietly opened his tiny restaurant on the side of a strip mall in the Saigon Houston Plaza, his goal was serve pho that would compete with established pho shops such as Pho Binh, which had an existing location on the same block. Instead of offering the thinly sliced rare eye of round that other joints had been utilizing for decades, he bought filet mignon and marinated it, introducing Houstonians to a new version of the dish called pho tai uop. Pho A Hung By Night, meanwhile, takes its Vietnamese roasted veal calf appetizer (be thui) and serves it as a replacement for the rare eye of round to make pho tai be. At Les Ba'get, a cafe in Montrose that specializes in banh mi sandwiches, chef/owner Cat Huynh offers build-your-own pho and entices diners to order whole roasted bone marrow to go with it. [...] there's the tried-and-true pho shops such as Pho Saigon Midtown, where Phuong Tran and his family have been serving traditional pho tai alongside glasses of Vietnamese iced coffee (ca phe sua da) made in the old-school metal drip filters since the 1980s. [...] on a recent Tuesday evening in the Heights, chef Vincent Huynh took liberties with the classic pho recipe during a pho pop-up event at neo-ice house Eight Row Flint, which typically serves tacos from an on-site truck. Huynh started with veal bones but roasted them like the French do when making stock, simmering the liquid for 48 hours before adding a special blend of spices to yield a chocolate-colored broth with a caramelized beef flavor. 1 pound beef tenderloin, lean beef sirloin or eye of round (for easier slicing, place the piece of meat in the freezer 30-40 minutes until slightly frozen) When you are ready to serve, bring the beef broth back to a simmer, covered. Bring the broth to a rolling boil, and ladle it directly over the meat in each bowl (the boiling broth will cook the raw beef instantly).
