Pho Vietnam Restaurant in Southaven, Mississippi

Pho Vietnam Restaurant and Bar in Southaven, Mississippi.
I was not expecting to find this in Mississippi but I did. I found a place to eat Pho.
What the Pho! Right?
Pho Vietnam 2
I have been to this place many, many times in the past when I was going out to Memphis to work all the time. Nothing like a good hot bowl of pho to subside your feelings of being cold and alone….
But since then, I guess they have added a few new things to the menu. One of which is the Pho King Challenge. I was so surprised by the pictures on Urbanspoon that there were so many people who attempted this challenge and many people have failed, see more pictures on their Facebook. I have decided that since I was in town, I was going to pay them a visit and take on their Pho King Challenge. I don’t have any intentions of finishing the whole thing but I just wanted to see it! I ordered the bowl and they had me sign a waiver in case I got sick and also for me to agree to the terms of the challenge.

Pho Vietnam Waiver
The bowl is much bigger in person! I definitely under estimated the size and the monstrosity of this ginormous bowl of pho! This ridiculous challenge is 2 pounds of noodles and 2 pounds of meat! They gave me an hour to eat it and I spent about a good 15 minutes eating it and threw in the towel. I purely ordered it just so I can see and take pictures of it! I mean where can you find a bowl that large?

Pho King Challenge
The owner had found someone locally to make and paint everything by hand so essentially each bowl is different. I was so compelled by the size that I decided to buy the bowl from Pho Vietnam. What a great souvenir from my visit to Mississippi!–It now resides in my dining room and I’d have to say that it really brings the room together! ;o)

      I know…. it was pretty ridiculous though! It was 30 bucks for that thing and if you finish it you win a check for 200 dollars and they comp the big bowl of pho. I started to feel sick about 10 minutes in! Plus, the challenge was dac biet style so that means 2 pounds of ALL the meats possible!

    Do you know how much liquid the bowl holds? Four pounds of noodles and meat is bad enough, but all the broth on top of that must make finishing near impossible!
