Thảo returns home every week to visit her mother. One routine evening, her mother invites her round for her famous home cooked Chicken Phở, the best in Southeast London, her words not Thảo’s. Mother is obsessed with feeding. However Thảo has a different kind of hunger. As she sits down at the table, questions and longing rise from her hot steaming bowl.
A story of redemption, restoration and generational healing that will ripple out across cultures and time. Connect to the food of our motherland and understand more about the person behind the bowl who cooked it for us.
The audio story is now available. For the best experience, bring your phone and compatible headphones to one of our partnering restaurants below. Or listen at home while eating Phở to enjoy a multisensory meal.
The audio story contains references to war and intergenerational trauma, which may be triggering. Listener discretion is advised.
