pho [Sep. 5th, 2006|08:52 pm]
This cold is still kicking my butt and making me really tired, so for dinner tonight Kuma & I went and got pho. (There are three pho places on the same block about half a mile from home.) It's not only yummy, it's a folk remedy, like chicken soup. And cheap! Hooray!

I got a large, because I am silly, and brought half of it home that I couldn't finish (so maybe not so foolish), and it was tasty.

Bonus: I had a really good salty soda lemonade. It's a very hit-or-miss drink. The first time I had it, it was amazing. It made me say, "oh! This is what every lemon-lime soda in existence is trying to be!" I've never had it that good since (usually it's way too salty or sweet or both), but tonight's was getting close. It was a bit chunky/pulpy with lemon bits, but still quite good.

Pho is awesome as a folk remedy. Hope you feel better soon.

Really? I will have to pump you for your secrets. To think I've been driving all the way to Denver for my pho.

Everyone seems to be getting this cold. I'd say the "change of season" sickness is a sure sign of summer's end. I hope you feel better soon!

I first had pho ga when I was sick, forced to go into work, and a coworker recommended it. He was very gringo, and it took me a while to unlearn all his habits (like "dump all the brown stuff in immediately before even bothering to taste it"), but I do think it is just as good as "traditional" chicken soup, if not better.
