CNNGo programme says Pho and Goi cuon are some dishes that “you eat to stay alive, others you eat because not to would be a crime.”
It says of Pho which ranks 28th in the list: “This … national dish is just broth, fresh rice noodles, a few herbs and usually chicken or beef. But it’s greater than the sum of its parts — fragrant, tasty and balanced.”
