Many people will tell you that pho is strictly a wintertime activity. Those people are wrong. HOWEVER, wintertime is when pho is at the height of its glory and benefit to your chi. Are you cold? Feeling empty? Pho will warm you, fill your soul. Are you ill? Go directly to your nearest pho dispensary and order a nice steaming-hot bowl of pho, smother it in Sriracha and whatever other hot sauce your merchant offers, and burn out what ails you. Are you hungover? These questions, and this recommendation, could go on forever. (Nearest pho to your current location, this minute)
