Thank You for the scouting report Melanie!

It came in handy tonight. We got takeout for 6 from Pho Vietnam, and had a wonderful time. The Pho was great. We had one order that was well done brisket and eye of round for the "less adventurous", and a version that added tripe and tendon for the earthier eaters. Wonderful flavors and textures. The 2 bun dishes we ordered were equally tasty. One was a beef version, and the other was a combination that had BBQ pork, shrimp, and egg rolls. We had a rice dish with shrimp the was another winner as well. I have never been a great fan of spring (salad) rolls, and these didn't make me a convert. I didn't expect to like them though, they weren't my choice.

The beverages and desserts are beautiful. I had a jones for sticky sweet iced coffee, but I'll try some of the other offerings soon! The salted plum drink, the soybean drink, and the tri color all look interesting. Those big old tapioca beads in the coconut milk are just too cool for words.

I must mention what a great value this place is. We spent $45 and we could have easily fed 2 more people. Much bang for you buck!
