Pho Soup Dumplings Are A Mashup That Makes So Much Sense

Soup dumplings are upper echelon levels of creativity if you think about it. The concept of a dumpling filled with savory, comforting broth and enticing proteins like shrimp, crab or pork is big brained activity if you ask me.

But when 18 Folds in Anaheim, California debuted these pho soup dumplings, I nearly slapped my own forehead with astonishment. It just. Makes. Sense.

The warm solace of pho is a bowl that’s always invited to any of our cravings. To have that in bite-sized dumpling form is the fusion that’s simply mathematical in any sense — it all adds up every which way you look at it.

Served with a side of hoisin sauce and sriracha and what you have is clarity in one bite.
