Area Foodie Brings ‘Keep Bowl’ To Pick Up Takeaway Pho

Uncertain times but authentic taste

On a mission to recreate the experience of eating a hearty Pho Dac Biet in-house, Alicia Pham, has a trick up her sleeve.

The area foodie has packed her ‘keep-bowl’ and is heading down her favourite Hanoi eatery this afternoon: Hello Auntie Marrickville.

“Can you throw the beef slices in last? Medium rare please”

This comes after the day-time marketing manager mistakenly ordered special beef noodles from the restaurant via Uber Eats, not once but twice during the last two weeks of work from home

With the noodles mushy and soup tasting like plastic, Alicia realised that it was on her to recreate the in-house noodle experience.

“Have you tried reconstructing deconstructed soup and noodles in a plastic bowl? Let me tell you” she told the waiters as she arrived. “Sacrilegious”

With a large bowl from Kmart in hand, she instructed staff accordingly.

The ‘keep bowl’, much like it’s close cousin the ‘keep cup’, is an environmentally sustainable choice when going for takeaway in their respective orders. 

However, the main differences being that the keep cup is intended for people who actually care about the environment, whereas the keep bowl is designed for Pho Dac Biet  officianados like Alicia.

A source close to Alice told The Native that she doesn’t really use keep cups because it ‘ruins the taste’.
