Phobruary, the best time of the year is here! Phobruary takes place in Silver City every February, it is a great time to experience a signature Vietnamese Pho Bowl. Silver City is home to many hidden gems in the city such as the Asian International Market, Bamboo, Thai Bar-B-Que, Vientiane Noodle Shop and more. The community is strongly encouraged to support small local restaurants throughout the year but especially during this time of uncertainty.
What is pho? It’s a soup native to Vietnam, common in Laos and Thailand, which delivers a complex combination of flavors that dance on the tongue’s taste buds. It combines noodles with a choice of thinly-sliced beef, chicken, vegetables or shrimp, and also offers a multitude of garnishes and fresh herbs to tailor the soup to individual preferences. These typically include Thai Basil, sprouts, cilantro, limes, jalapeño, sauces, peppers, and other items. This delicious combination of flavors will satisfy your hunger by the time you get to the bottom of the bowl.
