Eating Pho in the SBS Feast Food Awards

Anyone who has visited Saigon knows that eating Pho is a regular pastime in Vietnam. More than a snack, less than a meal, it is a moment in time where you can sit and enjoy an exquisite treat at a strange juncture in the day or night when hunger might overtake you - late at night when you are drunk is a perfect moment for Pho consumption, don't ask me how I know.

If you live in Australia the final word on Pho is published this week in the fabulous SBS Feast Magazine. Attached to the mag is a fantastic little booklet detailing the results of the 2012 Feast Food Awards, giving the lowdown on the best places to get the key dishes in each capital city.

Judging Pho for Sydney is a prominent food blogger and someone pretty close to my heart, Thang Ngo from Noodlies. No need to declare an interest here - crack open your copy of my book Destination Saigon and you will discover that it is dedicated to him.

So who did he declare the best Pho in Sydney? I'm not saying - get the mag and find out for yourself, as well as where you can get the best Peking Duck, Pad Thai and Tandoori Chicken all over Australia. This little booklet is a treasure that is going straight into my carry-on luggage.

And the rest of SBS Feast magazine is always terrific reading - and I'm not just saying that because Mr. Noodlies is featured this month. It is always one of the magazines I look forward to most every month, filled with quirky and subastantial stories about food and eating all over the world.
