Bowl: Vegetarian recipes for Ramen, Pho, Bibimbap, Dumplings, and Other One Dish Meals by Lukas Volger
Pho Cuong looks like a cute, tiny, teal colored house right on the corner of 33th & Classen. But step inside and the smell of spice filled pho broth and fresh cilantro will let you know that it is not a someone’s sweet home, but instead a cozy little restaurant where you will feel like staying and eating bowl after bowl. Not only do they have the best pho in town (in my opinion) but I am also super partial to their egg rolls and Vermicelli Bowls. If you are not familiar with pho (and even if you are) Pho Cuong is your place to go, as even my friends from out of town request Pho Cuong on their visits!
For those of you that venture out of OKC every once in awhile to the surrounding lands, Pho Lan is located in Moore, OK and totally worth the drive. As opposed to Pho Cuong, Pho Lan has a more modern space and feel, but the pho is equally delicious. Piping hot bowls full of rice noodles, flavorful broth, and your choice of meats (I choose rare steak) make pho a filling, comforting and delicious meal. I fill my bowl full of lime juice, Sriracha and tons of Thai basil, but the choices are many and all yours. Pho Lan also has great fresh shrimp rolls and steamed pork dumplings! If you’ve ever been tempted to try making a bowl of some of this delicious noodle soup for yourself but weren’t sure where to start, check out Bowl: Vegetarian recipes for Ramen, Pho, Bibimbap, Dumplings, and Other One Dish Meals by Lukas Volger.
