Frequently Asked Questions
What’s pho 95 mean?
95 is not just a number, but an inspiring symbol that has kept our family motivated and together. More specifically it is the year that our family first immigrated to the United States. This number means a lot to our family and is something that has been around since the beginning of our business. With that, we’d like to invite you to come share some of our strong family ties and enjoy a nice hot bowl of Pho 95!
Oftentimes they’re lucky numbers. “In some Asian cultures, eight is associated with wealth or prosperity. Repetition is considered desirable (Olympics started 8/8/08). Or to mark a date in Vietnamese history, or the owners’ personal life.” For example, Phở 67 could stand for 1967, the year the owner fled Vietnam during the war. The Phở 75s of the world are probably honoring 1975, the year Saigon fell.
Is pho Gluten-Free?
Pho 95 is great, and very heavily based on rice, rice-flour and rice-noodles, so one does not encounter too much gluten. It contains a lot of very fresh ingredients, and very little spicing, rarely or no use soy sauce. Caution when adding plum sauce, hoisin sauce to your pho Broth since this sauce contain wheat ingredient.
