to be honest,
i do beer most of the time.
i rather enjoy the fish sauce taste so i do like sake for that touch of sweetness, but you dont really taste the sake especially if you get something delicate like a ginjo/daiginjo.
as mentioned nigori sake would be fine. the rice flavor is like an extra mouthfeel of the rice vermicelli.
soju, is like vodka taste wise to me. does vodka go well with pho? sure =) but alot of the beverages being thrown around wouldnt make the pho any better. From the suggestions, it sounds like what is the least offensive drink i can find to pair with pho.
i dont like most white wines because specifically of the acidity. I like my pho stock to be rich and hearty, not sweet and sour
