What can be better than a good Vietnamese soup in the middle of a cold? Trust me it’s heaven. At least, the pho soups from Pho Ginseng in Huntersville, NC are. The herbal soups have the base made with ginseng that has not only the best flavor I have ever eaten but it has health benefits also.
Pho is a beef bone broth that takes 10 hours of slow cooking process. The broth is made by simmering 20 pounds of beef bones, 10 pounds of flank steak, pear and white onion and herbs like cinnamon, black pepper, ginseng, black cardamom, ginger, coriander and others.
The advantage of the cooking process is that the slow cooking will break down the bones and the connective tissues of the meat that leaves behind the collagen which are the most important cells to bones and the brain.
The restaurant has excellent reviews on every review site I have looked and now I know why.
