When I think of pho, I'm taken back to the many comfort meals I'd enjoy at home, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. Taking down a piping bowl of rich, aromatic pho was probably one of my greatest delights growing up.
Well, it looks like McDonald's Vietnam is looking to capture some of those delights in the motherland, as they've taken elements of the iconic Vietnamese noodle soup and turned it into a Pho Burger.
The burger features two beef patties sourced from Vietnam's neighboring Australia, an egg patty, pho centric herbs, and cilantro. McDonald's also took pho broth and reduced it down to a thick sauce to finish off the Pho Burger, served on an English Muffin.
Not sure how I feel about the lack of noodles if they're calling it a pho burger, though.
You can also order Vietnamese Iced Coffee to go along with your burger. If you're a fan of robust drip coffee paired with sweet condensed milk, it is definitely a must-try. Though not quite sure how strong McDonald's makes theirs.
Not super sure if the new burger is meant for breakfast, lunch or dinner, but hey, I feel that way about regular pho. It kind of goes with every meal.
You can find the burger and coffee combination at participating McDonald's locations in Vietnam.
