  Tucked in an alleyway off Taipei's bustling ZhongXiao East Road, you'll find Pho Hoa Vietnamese Noodle Soup Restaurant. This small, traditional, Vietnamese restaurant chain is already quite famous overseas, and is in its fourth year at its present location. Pho Hua's popularity overseas has been instrumental to its success in Taiwan. According to Chang Zeh-ren, a senior waiter here, 60 percent of the patrons coming to this branch have already tried Pho Hua's dishes at a branch in another country. Their most famous dish is called the Chef d'oeuvre Pho (NT$150). This is a hardy rice noodle soup combining Pho Hoa's most popular ingredients--steak, chicken, meatballs, tripe, fatty flank, and bean sprouts--immersed in the unique bone soup which the owner claims to be the secret to their success. It's a large serving by any standard. For those with lesser appetites, the single ingredient noodle soups such as the Steak Pho or the Tendon Pho are a tasty alternative. You can add as many ingredients to your noodle soup as you desire. Also, Pho Hoa's Crispy Spring Rolls (NT$80) are a must try. Finally, the traditional Vietnamese Coffee (NT$50) makes your Vietnamese dining experience more complete. --By Wendy Su
