Vietnam's signature noodle soup has existed for more than 100 years. A North Vietnamese staple with strong French and Chinese influences, the rice noodle dish is typically served with a choice of red meat or tofu, but the best part about pho is personalizing your bowl: each order comes with a wide selection of standard sides, including bean sprouts, lime or lemon wedges, basil, scallions, cilantro and jalapeño slices. Pho doesn't skimp on options, and Milwaukee has followed suit by playing host to Vietnamese restaurants serving up the hearty soup in all corners of the city.
