I love pho. Thankfully the Vietnamese have brought their amazing noodle soup to our shores so that I can enjoy this delicious meal. Now I typically order a basic beef pho or flank steak pho, but my friend always orders his with soft tendon. This is something we will just never agree on. Why would you take a perfectly good noodle soup and mess it up with tendon?
I am definitely not a fan of the Jello-like soft tendon. I can’t help but think of my own tendons that connect my muscles and that makes it hard to for me to eat. For some reason I don’t have this problem when I’m eating pretty much any other kind of meat. I’m almost positive it’s the texture. It just freaks me out. Even when I coat it in Sriracha. I just can’t do it. The mind is amazing when it comes to making you nauseous.
