Sometimes the sauce is rotten because the weather and temperature is not in good condition. Therefore, I think you should buy one soya sauce when you intend making this Vietnamese Food Pho. When the soya sauce is added to this dish, it will have a yellow brown color like honey. The sour Pho is more delicious if it is eaten with chilies sauce of the Northern people.
