You Can Eat Pho By The Gallon At This Seattle Restaurant

biggest bowl of pho


Since it’s cold out, it’s only fitting you should load up on all of the noodle soups out there, whether ramen, soba, udon or pho. Dong Thap Noodles, located in Seattle, Washington, serves a dish that’s been dubbed “The Biggest Bowl of Pho In The World.” Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup that consists of a fragrant broth, rice noodles called bánh phở, herbs and meat. This bowl at Dong Thap Noodles serves people a gallon of pho.

All of the rice noodles for the soup are made fresh every morning. To make this giant steamy soup the restaurant uses four pounds of meat, four pounds of noodles and four liters of broth. On top of the meat and noodles, there are scallions, onions and cilantro. It’s all served in a bowl that’s about the size of a sink. People usually squirt a little Hoisin sauce, sriracha and fish sauce on top once the bowl reaches the table.

The “Super Bowl” challenges hungry pho lovers to finish the entire bowl solo within an hour to receive a $100 prize. If you fail at the challenge you’re down $40, which is the cost of the bowl.

To finish this enormous bowl of pho, you’re going to need some serious stamina and a stomach that’s ready to take on a sink’s worth of liquid. The good part is, rice noodles are light compared to wheat noodles and once your adrenaline kicks in, you might even surprise yourself.
