My first real Vietnamese Pho.

As soon as we settled into our hotel and showered, Matt and I headed to the local market downtown Ho Chi Minh City and ordered one steaming bowl of Pho with beef and intestines. The broth was weak, the beef tender and the intestines surprizingly clean with a shitake mushroom texture. Overall not a bad soup, the best Pho in town was to be discovered a few hours later by the river (see “Lunch Lady vs. Pho Lady” post).




Real Vietnamese coffee sans condensed milk.
