Sonic Phở – Audio Story
Thao 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 Thao’s.
Mother is obsessed with feeding. However Thao 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.
Phở is a popular noodle soup dish from Vietnam and a firm favourite in Vietnamese restaurants across the world.
We Are Lewisham is presented by Lewisham Council in partnership with The Albany as part of the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022.
