In the video, Tyler Akin, owner of Philadelphia pho restaurant Stock, talks through his tips for the best pho, including using jalapeños and lime and omitting hot sauce and hoisin. You can watch the full video here.

The anger quickly spread to Twitter.

I wonder if hipster pho restaurants spend 14 hrs on their broth like my mom does I wonder if their broth is rich with history like hers is

That face white people make when they send back a bowl of pho cause it doesn't have enough pumpkin spice.

Why would I go to this restaurant for pho where there's like 75 places run/owned by Vietnamese people in Philly https://t.co/wjF3xDAnWW

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Stock for comment.


The magazine has issued an apology via its website, thanking people for "calling us out."
