Pho 101 gets it right

Pho 101
There may not be 101 reasons to try Pho 101 but there is at least one very good reason: it serves pho at night. Nocturnal noodle lovers have probably noticed that late-night options are limited in Vientiane, particularly for pho, which is generally considered a morning dish. Pho 101 is not only open from early morning until late at night, it also serves deliciously authentic Vietnamese style pho.

What’s different about Vietnamese pho? Firstly, the broth. Authentic Vietnamese pho features extremely flavorsome broth using star anise to evoke a sweet, cinnamony flavor. This often surprises Lao customers, who madly dump every condiment they can find into their bowl to try to add some flavor. But this is not necessary at Pho 101 and management has even stuck a cheeky sign on the wall reading, “????????????????” – please taste before adding condiments!

Outside Pho 101

The other major difference between Vietnamese pho and that commonly found in Lao is the noodles themselves, which are typically wider, softer flat rice noodles. When cooked correctly, the noodles are the perfect accompaniment to the broth. Finally, Pho 101 uses only 100% Australian beef flank, meaning extremely tender slices of beef in every bowl; without gristle, fat or weird bits.

You can find Pho 101 opposite Kiettisak International School on Sokpaluang Rd right in front of the giant pink HHI Apartments. Call 021 316 052.
