A first for me: tasting a Vietnamese dish called Pho noodle soup. It is a flavorful beef broth with Pho, a type of Asian rice noodle, cooked with onions, garlic, beef, and spices, to which one adds garnishes of Thai basil, sliced jalapeno peppers, crunchy bean shoots, and a squeeze of fresh lime. It was an interesting blend of flavors, and a cozy lunch on a rainy spring day.
Jonathan and I met for lunch on a weekday to try this new ethnic food, which he has enjoyed with coworkers. We hope to try some other interesting restaurants near his workplace on occasion.
Thanks, Jonathan, for inviting me to join you! I enjoyed the adventure. :) Anyone have a favorite Thai dish to suggest, or another favorite international food?
