English Reading Practice - Intermediate

(Apologies to my Vietnamese

friends. I'm going to mispronounce the word "pho" because most English-speaking people mispronounce it) 🙏🙏

Pho, considered to be Vietnam’s national dish, is beloved throughout the country and the world. In its simplest form, it consists of a fragrant broth poured over a bed of fresh rice noodles topped with a handful of green onion, herbs and succulent sliced meat. While beef pho (pho bo) is the most popular and is eaten throughout the day, chicken pho (pho ga) is also much loved – it’s said to have been first concocted in 1939 when the government tried to curb the slaughtering of cows by forbidding the sale of beef on Mondays and Fridays. As it’s lighter than its beefy counterpart, it is often preferred for breakfast. But there are countless variations on the theme, and everyone has his or her favourite local spot to eat it.
