I went out to get some dinner at Pho Bang. I got the #1 Pho (Tai Nam Gau Gan Sach – combination rice noodle beef soup with fresh eye of round, brisket, tendon and omosa) $6.50 regular size. To me regular size is big. I saw the big size at the table next to me. Geez.
Really good Pho. Hit the spot. I threw in bean sprouts, mint leaves and lime wedges, hoisen and cock sauce. Great meal.
Then Todd came and met up with me there when I was finishing up. He was curious about the sign that said “Vietnamese Hams Are Not For Resale!!!” They must be freakin’ good if people are buying them to resell them. Todd bought a $5 small one. It was rolled up in a banana leaf. We tried it out on Sunday football. It was spongy like fish balls. Tasted like mushed up pork, but not really flavorful. We will not be trying to resell them.
