Vietnamese Noodle Soup anyone?

Today's taste treat comes from the Little Saigon district of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The best Vietnamese Noodle Soup shop in the Metro is a little place called Pho Hoa. Everything in the restaurant is perfectly ordinary ... except the food, and that is really, really good. Bring an appetite because the portions are huge. Bring cash because they don't take plastic.

Pho is a soup dish that begins with a nice big bowl of beef stock soup with a heap of rare flank steak, tripe, tendons and rice noodles. When it arrives at your table, squeeze in some fresh lime, a few drops of hot sauce to taste, and shred some oriental basil. Mix it all together and enjoy. It is polite to eat with both hands - chopsticks in one hand and an Asian soup spoon in the other.

You might also enjoy some of the finger foods. Here's a motivational image of what came to our table.



PS. If you have an extra minute or two, today is a really good day to visit Katie's place and post a great big Happy B-day smiley.

G'day! I'm finally here.
Yumm, deelish.
I like asian style food and when the family finally does go out on a weekend we often have a yum cha in one of the restaurants in China Town in the city.
I visited last week but I was looking at your blog on books and then couldn' get back here. So then I found myself at "Rose Cottage Studio" and then got caught up with all the goings on there.

Cheeers and beers,
Mark.

This sounds good even at 8:30 am! With a tall glass of Vietnamese iced coffee--my favorite beverage in all the world. Like manna.
