The history of pho touches on colonialism and intercultural exchange, culinary ingenuity and the influence of immigration. Pho (or phở) is a melting pot, in more ways than one. In this episode of Food History, Justin shares 10 fun facts about pho.

Phở may be influenced by French and Chinese cuisines, but it is a distinctly Vietnamese dish that has found worldwide success.
