This is a definitely notch above instant ramen. Rice noodles are cushioned in a little tray and you get a packet of solid palm oil (which I’m sure is deadly) along with the veggies and seasonings. Prep couldn’t be easier: boil water, pour over all ingredients, cover and wait three minutes.
The verdict? It doesn’t really taste like pho (lacking the star anise and roasted bone flavors) but is pretty good for what it is. I’d buy again. It comes in a modest 250 calories but packs most of your day’s allotment of salt in, much of that in the form of MSG which gave me a nice tingle.
If you can’t find it locally, Oh Rice Pho Bo is available on Amazon. (That link is for a case of 24 which offers the best unit price; smaller quantities are available as well if you search.)
