Instant Pho is part of The Lost & Found Year(s) Trip Report.
The number one draw for my blog is my Pho reviews. Without access to aviation, I have had no opportunities to sample new pho. Indeed, the furthest I’ve ventured is to my local Costco. Last time I was there, I was buying my typical chicken & broccoli when I came across a peculiar sight: instant pho for sale. This was peculiar for two reasons. First, Costco only sells a limited number of items. Instant pho seemed very niche, especially for the Puerto Rican market, one of the few places in the world I have tried pho. Second, how can a dish that takes hours and hours to prepare be reduced to three minutes in the microwave? Surely it must taste like ramen noodles or something terrible. For $10, I made the sacrilegious choice to buy 9 pre-made bowls. After all, in these ‘unprecedented times’, unprecedented actions are acceptable (see From Your Grade School Principal: Regarding COVID-19).
So how did it go? Let’s look at the unboxing.
Maybe it’s because I haven’t left the house in years, but I was very impressed with instant pho.
