How about a little culinary excursion today to Vietnam? This past weekend, B and I wanted something inexpensive and delicious, sounds like a tall order, no? But we found it a few blocks from our villa. Vietnamese Pho.This was my first time having Pho, but when I saw the ingredients to this delicious soup I was definitely in!
Pho is : a rice noodle soup served with basil, lime, bean sprouts and peppers that you can add to taste.

I couldn't believe that I hadn't discovered this delicious meal before, where have I been?
You can have chicken, beef or tripe added. I had mine with filet mignon for $7. YES 7 bucks people!
I also had coconut juice to compliment this already amazing meal, and it was so good. I was so happily surprised when they brought it to the table straight from the coconut. It was like getting a really nice present on top of an already fantastic meal.
Some of you may have had Pho before, but I wanted to share my Pho story to encourage you to try something different. Explore a new restaurant or perhaps just a new dish at your favorite place. Take a chance. Soup does not sound like the dish for summer, but again if you limit your experiences to the "appropriate" season or time, you are going to miss out! And since going out to eat is a treat, maybe you can choose to experiment a new dish during lunch when the prices are less. This was a splendid meal and I will be going back for mo' pho! (sorry I couldn't resist I love the word pho now, pho sho!)
