Winter is here and its time for Pho!
Meet up at my house (Hermitage/Lawrence, email/call for exact address) and ride 6ish blocks to a Vietnamese Pho restaurant at Argyle Street and Boadway.
It can't get simpler or shorter.
But, if you think that is too long of a ride, you can meet us at the restaurant at 6:30 (whimps).
We will be eating at Pho Viet located at 4941 North Broadway.
If you don't know what Pho Soup is, I copied some stuff from Wikipedia:
Vietnamese dishes are meals typically served with lots of greens, herbs, vegetables and various other accompaniments such as dipping sauces, hot and spicy pastes, and flavor enhancements such as a squeeze of lime or lemon. The dish is garnished with ingredients such as green onions, white onions, coriander, Thai basil (húng quế) (should not be confused with sweet basil - Vietnamese: húng chó or húng dổi), fresh Thai chili peppers, lemon or lime wedges, bean sprouts, and leaves of culantro (ngò gai) (should not be confused with cilantro or coriander - which is called ngò rí in Vietnamese. The coriander plant is used just for its seeds - hạt ngò to prepare the broth, but not its leaves).
If that doesn't leave you hungry, I don't know what will...
And their veggie spring rolls are amazing.
