Hey, I'm looking for a good recipe for Pho Tai or Pho Bo, the Vietnamese noodle soup. There is a great Vietnamese restaurant in my area, and I love their Pho. Tasting it, I know there is some sort of beef broth, rice noodles, scallions, white onions, thinly sliced beef, star anise, and cilantro.
Also, where would I get star anise and what kind of beef would be used? Also, what kind of sprouts are normally in Vietnamese and Thai food?
