I was at Trader Joe’s recently and came across this new frozen offering, Trader Joe’s ‘Beef Pho Soup.’ While I’m a big fan of pho and I hope it becomes as popular as ramen, it’s not something I can easily cook at home like instant ramen. I was pleasantly surprised to see this at Trader Joe’s, so I had to buy and try this.
After poking some holes in the plastic film covering and microwaving, I got this well heated beef pho soup dish:
My impression was that it was better than I had expected it to be, but not exactly beef pho soup. I did like it, but I think I would have to eat two or three of these to fill full. I forgot how much I paid for this, but I’m guessing around $5. So was it worth it? Not sure… It’s tasty enough, but don’t expect the pho you would get at your local Vietnamese restaurant.
