Well-done: It's pho. A type of Vietnamese soup, typically made from beef stock and spices to which noodles and thinly sliced beef or chicken are added. That’s how Oxford, the dictionary, puts it. For a word of foreign language to land a place in the English speaking world, it definitely takes more than simple beef stock, spices and thin slices of beef.
