Omid Sadri’s Pho Bowl
Pho is a traditional Vietnamese beef noodle soup – something I had A LOT of during my Uni years in Brisbane, Australia. My housemates and I would often frequent this one store run by a Vietnamese couple because they served the meanest Pho in town. However, they always served them in gaudy bright orange melamine bowls, completely unlike the elegant multi-tiered Pho bowl designed by Omid Sadri.

For Pho, the noodles are traditionally served in a bowl of steaming hot soup along with the meat parts whilst the bean sprouts, lemon, basil and mint are served on separate plates. Lastly, there’s the chili paste that comes with it to complete the dish. Omid Sadri has come up with a cleverly designed bowl that serves the noodles and condiments all in one stackable bowl, with a feature for inserting the chopsticks and soup spoon along with it.

In KL, the best Pho i can find is over at a franchised chain called Pho-Hoa. You can often find me during weekends at the branch located at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. Maybe I should get them to think of serving it up in these bowls. Hopefully i don’t get a ‘Pho-get it!!!’ from the manager.
