I had been craving for good Vietnamese food or a decent bowl of pho. We had planned a visit D.C. again for the 4th so I was really looking forward to it — a hot steaming bowl of pho that I don’t have to make. We never made it to eat Vietnamese food but did order pho from Pho Tay Ho on Route 7. It was not the best bowl of pho but it did satisfied my craving.
However, it was a carry-out order which is never as good as eating at the restaurant where you can have a nice drink of soy milk or café su dua (iced Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk) and pick from your plate of bean sprouts and other accompaniments. Nevertheless, the broth was still piping hot in the container. I’ll have to have another “fun pho weekend’ and make a batch with my Oldest Aunt’s ingredients — the one that includes dried tangerine peels.
