Phở Birria Vietnamese and Mexican Mashup Opening in Northeast Philly

Food mashups and food fusion are nothing new, but one unique new place to open in Northeast Philly will combine the culinary delights of Vietnam and Mexico in its creations.

The name, Phởrria, is a mashup of two popular dishes featured in each cuisine. Phở or pho is a Vietnamese soup dish consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat. Birria tacos are a traditional Mexican dish made from slow-cooked beef or goat meat, shredded and served in a corn tortilla, and served with a spicy consommé or broth on the side for dipping.

Phởrria Birria, located at 4000 Woodhaven Road in far Northeast Philly, will feature phở birria tacos (pho tacos or Mexipho), comprising crunchy tortillas filled with slow-cooked meat served with a side of pho dipping sauce. It sounds like a dream combo of pho and birria tacos to me!

It will also offer Phở-king fries. Crispy cut waffle fries topped with slow-cooked meat and traditional phở ingredients.

It looks like a phở birria ramen bowl might be on the menu, too. Either way, it all sounds incredible to me.

According to its Instagram page, they are looking to open by the end of the month. A soft opening will begin on Sunday, January 29, with a grand opening on Sunday, February 5.

Are you excited for this phở birria (Mexipho??) mashup?
