Hi Holly: you're on your own with this one. Personally I think the owner of this pho chain should have a little more respect for what many consider VIetnam's national dish to the world.

I agree with you, Cuong. Do you think I should demand to speak to the Pho King manager? I just can't believe anyone would show such blatant disrespect for Vietnamese cuisine. I won't be able to eat another Pho King meal without thinking about this travesty. I mean, honestly. It's a Pho King disgrace!

Don't worry, Cuong. I'll take care of this matter as soon as I can. When I storm in there with both guns blazing, those Pho King morons won't know what hit them!

Sorry Holly to hear you have such strong feelings about such nonsense, and you've made your point.

I am Vietnamese and we at my home have always pronounced it pho, like foeh.

Hi phozy: Thanks for your sharing your pronunciation of pho. My personal feeling, and still my original intent of this article, is to let people hear what it sounds like, because when one tries to show others how it should sound using words like "foeh", it really does not help. Many people would pronounce "foeh" as "phooey" I would guess, which is no where near what phở should sound like.

After listening to the pronunciation, and if you know Romanian, I would say it's said "Fă"

Hi Fă Fă: I'll take your word for it. Not sure what "Fă" means though. Care to enlighten us?
