In 1954 Pho started to be seen further South due to its popularity. As the dish got more popular so did it’s variations and when the North and South divide occurred as a result of the Vietnam War, there was a distinct difference between the the complex Southern Pho with more ingredients and the traditional or original norther Pho.
