Vietnamese cuisine: Pho

Monday, April 19, 2010

Hello there! how are you?

I am starving! it's that kind of starving where your mouth drys a bit...oh, maybe perhaps I need to drink water. I haven't done that at all this morning.

okay, well anyways, you have til tonight to enter for the cuisinart ice cream maker. I'll be picking winners tomorrow.

A few days ago, I went to one of my favorite Pho resturant: Pho Ca Dao. I realized for the longest time that I have been pronouncing it wrong! and it's hard to break the habit.

I used to think it was called (pha-ka-dow) along with the rest of everyone! but it is actually (Pha-ka-yow)
Oh how I hate silent letters! but I digress.

We started with egg rolls. I haven't had eggrolls in a long time, so it was just what I imagined it to be.
hot, crunchy, slightly salty, and savory.

The batter was perfect. Not soggy at all.

Combining the lettuce and pickled carrots made eating the egg roll much filling.
It also made me feel a bit 'healthy' that I was combining greens to something fried and probably unhealthy.
I don't think that's the case, but it helps. :o)

 I got to sit next to the window. In the past, this seat was where I always wanted to sit at. Primarily for the "view". I think they should start adding exotic flowers in my opinion!

Then my bowl came!
#17- Beef noodle soup with cooked and rare steak.
mmmm, the broth is hot enough to slightly cook the rare steak.

yikes! now I am hungry!!!!

Sorry for the lame post, BUT I am going to eat a PB&J sandwich and dink a protein shake. Starving!!!

What ethnic cuisines do you enjoy? Also, what is your ethnic background, do you have any favorite dishes from your culture?

I love Tex-Mex, I am a sucker for cheese, black beans and guacamole!! I can never get enough of it, but I since it carries so many calories I usually try to replicate recipes at home and make them a bit healthier.
