Phubs 101

Everything you never learned in school


What is Pho?

This hot noodle soup is perhaps the most well known Vietnamese dish.  Pho originated in Vietnam in the early 20th century.  It's pronounced "fuh", although no one really knows where the name originated from.  Originally sold by street vendors in Vietnam, it's worked its way to popularity in the United States in the 1990s.

Rice noodles drowning in a savory broth are a staple, but there are endless combinations of meat and vegetables for you to enjoy.


What is Banh Mi?

Banh Mi actually means bread.  Since bread is not a staple of the Asian diet, "Banh Mi" became synonymous with "sandwich" when the French introduced baguettes in Vietnam during colonization.   Adding savory meats and crisp vegetables to a French baguette makes this unlike any other sandwich you have tasted.  


Do any of your foods contains nuts?

Our peanut dipping sauce contains peanuts.  Crushed peanuts are also available as a condiment.  No other foods contain nuts.


Do you have any gluten free options?

All of our pho bowls, with the exception of the Phubolicious with meatball, are gluten free.  Our Summer Rolls, if enjoyed with nuoc mam dipping sauce, are also gluten free.  Also, our Organic Salad, Rice or Noodle Bowls with Bulgogi Steak, Phun Yum Shrimp, Citrus Sesame, Spicy or Drunken Dunk Chicken are safe for gluten free diners. (for Salad, you will have to substitute the salad dressing for nuoc mam to complete the Gluten Free option.  Unfortunately we do not have separate kitchens to prepare gluten free items.


What do you have for vegans?

Our Pho, Banh Mi, Organic Salad and Rice, all come with a vegetarian option. You can also add Tofu to rice or noodles. Our Summer Rolls can also be ordered without Pork and/or Shrimp.


Why are you called "Phubs"?

Our premiere menu items are two of the most popular vietnamese foods, Pho and Banh Mi.  Pho is pronounced "fuh", although you may call it "fo".  Banh Mi is the most amazing "sub" on the planet. Yes, we're biased!  So take "fuh" + "subs" = Phubs!


You keep mentioning "all natural ingredients" what does that mean?

Our produce is farm fresh. Nothing comes from a can.  We make our own broth and use real ingredients to flavor our meats in-house.
