What the Phở?

In praise of Vietnamese food: to me, it's fantastic, exotic, strange and excellent. Did I mention diffferent? At least where I've tried it in the USA, vastly different (and immensely better) than typical Chinese fare. I'm a true fan of Indian, Thai, and Japanese, but this summer on the road, it was Vietnamese grub that really grabbed my attention.

Here's a sample of Phở (looks like "Pho" but sounds more like "Fuh?") -- something about the fusion of native Vietnamese cuisine with French colonial additions, plus other Asian influences, really impresses my palate. Vietnamese coffee is awesome, too -- served either in French style, or with some sugary infusion, or with condensed milk added. It's all good!

Have you tried Lebanese Kibbee? I'm not much for raw meat, but this is very tastee.

Hey Jim -- good stuff, eh? Better than Kibbel and Bits, I'm guessing ;->

(Seriously, I do like Lebanese food, too)
