A girl from Gyeonggido of South Korea, Yang San (陽傘양산), has lived in Taiwan for about 4 years. She once had a study tour to Kaohsiung after graduating from high school. With positive experiences living in Taiwan, she thus chose to enter a university here. When she was in college, she watched a video that transformed her into a vegetarian. Then she started cooking vegetarian dishes by herself and visiting some vegetarian restaurants in Taiwan.

Because there are not many vegetarians in South Korea, Yang San wishes to share more about vegetarian food through videos and therefore created a YouTube Channel 陽傘양산.

In this episode of the "New Immigrants in Taiwan" column, Yang San tried affordable vegetarian Vietnamese food in Taichung.

As Vietnamese Pho is a must-try dish, Yang San ordered two flavors of it, including “Signature Pho Soup” and “Spicy Pho Soup”. Besides, the pho provided here is handmade and one can choose between fine and wide noodles.

“The pho has a nice and chewy texture, and the soup has an extraordinary flavor,” Yang San said. “Every piece of ingredients is very tasty, and the proprietress should have stewed them for a long time.”

Afterward, the spicy pho soup was served. Yang San had a taste of it and said, “the soup is more flavorful than the signature pho soup, and it is not that spicy but still mouth-watering.”
