Of course I do! I always remember my fellow Parnate ingestors. When I looked up Pho recipes on the web I found some contained anchovy paste and some did not. I called the restaurant I ate at and they did use paste in their broth. Since many Pho restaurants are run by heavily accented workers, I decided it would be risky to try it again.
I would be careful about Pho unless you can ask the employee about the ingredients and be sure he gives you a clear and honest answer. It has also made me much more wary about other asian dishes. I still eat ethnic, but if I don't know the ingredients I always ask. And if I'm not sure about the language barrier I don't chance it. After two attacks - I definitely don't want another! Of course, even if I knew it had anchovy paste in it I wouldn't necessarily known it wasn't allowed. I had to look that up too!
