Event promoting pho held in Hanoi

By Le Hoang

HCMC - The second “Day of Pho (Vietnamese noodle)” was held by Tuoi Tre newspaper and Acecook Vietnam at AEON Mall Long Bien in Hanoi on December 13, with an aim to help boost the dish to the same level of fame as national dishes of other countries such as Italy’s pizza, Japan’s sushi, and Germany’s sausage.

With the theme “Honoring Vietnamese Flavor – Journey to the Old Pho,” the event featured a series of interesting activities such as an exhibition introducing the dish’s 100-year history, discussions on pho, free pho tastings, and an awards ceremony to recognize the outstanding entries of the writing competition “Ky uc ve Pho” (Memories of Pho).

Many pho stalls in Hanoi and HCMC joined the event from December 5 to 12.  Particularly on December 12, some first guests of certain stalls in the two cities received gifts from Acecook Vietnam.

Tran Xuan Toan from Tuoi Tre newspaper said that in the coming years, “Day of Pho” will be developed into a large-scale community and tourism event.
