This past Sunday I went to a Pho restaurant in Arington with Jenn and Joenn. This was a cafeteria style place: no special decorations, little ambiance, but we came for the food.
The menu was simple: pretty much just soup and drinks. I was sad they did not have any appetizers. Not being super adventurous when it comes to meat, I ordered #9 (Jenn did the same!).
Joenn, on the other hand, ordered something with meatballs and tripe. Tripe!? I guess it's a lining of a stomach! I was brave and gave it a taste: I'm not a fan. It pretty much has no taste, but has a very chewy consistency. What I did like that Joenn ordered, was this pretty drink seen below. It was a coconut milk drink with jello cubes inside: sort of orange-y flavor.
And then came the soup (pho). The broth was very flavorful, but I still added a bit of hot sauce. We were also served a plate full of basil and sprouts. Oh, and the noodles were amazingly soft.
This was definitely a great meal....and the price was unbeatable!
Confession: after the meal Jenn wanted to get pancakes. Having made blueberry & mini chocolate pancakes for breakfast I wasn't very interested in that idea, but still came along to IHOP and ordered chicken wings!!!
