Pho 78 - Miami
Saw the article in today's Miami Herald re: Pho 78. Anybody been? Pho is one of my comfort foods and it would be nice if Miami had a viable option. Asian in Miami is typically very poor, so I was hoping to get some feedback before I make the trek. Thanks.
I also love pho. Where is Pho 78? You can get wonderful and authentic pho at Green Papaya at 16893
Sorry for that incomplete post. Green Papaya is at 16893 NW 67TH Ave. just north of the Palmetto 67th Ave. exit.
Pho choices in Miami are really bad. Miss Saigon's and Little Saigon's in the Gables have almost tasteless versions. The one I make at home with the pho broth paste tastes better. I usually have to trek to Pompano to get anything decent. I've heard of a place down south near Pinecrest, but I cant' vouch for it.
1 large can beef broth
3 cubes beef broth
Fill the rest of the pot with water.
Use about 6 cinnamon sticks
8 star anise
1 piece peeled ginger
about 1/2 cup fish sauce
1/2 cup sugar
either beef bones or fat from the steak you plan to use.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 3 hours.
You've got me googling ... I am the reason pho is pronounced "duh."
Will be mastering pho this weekend. Got any pointers for a pho cook dimmer than sum?
I followed the articles in the Miami New Times that detailed the various asian markets on 167th Street and also hit the one on the 79th St Causeway last Saturday - a delicious day!
Guess it's time to teach myself the finer points of Woking on the Wild Side.
Sorry... couldn't resist.
Help a fellow belly out?
79th Street Causeway must be a reference to Sushi Deli, which is almost right across from the Channel 7 station. Small little Japanese market with a sushi bar where Chef Kushi cranks out some nice rolls and nigiri. I especially like the Captain Tuna Roll (a minced spicy tuna maki) and the Ceviche Roll. Also a good place to get frozen sushi grade tuna and salmon (which I use to make tartares).
