Are you on a restricted DIET (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, GAPS, etc). Check out RESOURCE:

Monday, June 28, 2010


I have an obsession over soup. It all started when I was little and my favorite snack was some various variety out of a Campbell's soup can. My tastes have since grown accustomed to more flavor & diversity. One of my super duper faves is Vietnamese Pho. I fell in love with Pho on the streets of Vietnam where it cost about $.50 per bowl. I enjoy Pho for several reasons:
  1. it is filling
  2. it comes with basil leaves, loads of sprouts and lime = healthy
  3. it has rice noodles which are a nice option for gluten-free peeps (its dairy-free too)

I was taken out to Ngog Vietnamese Bistro in Saint Paul, MN. It is a lovely sustainable & local supporting restaurant. They take pride in serving fresh ingredients from around the Twin Cities - what's not to love?

Serving up local brews!

Not only that but the environment is welcoming, the server accommodating, they have a cute patio, local brews AND the soup was reasonably priced! WOOT WOOT. There were so many wonderful dishes on the menu it was hard deciding on the Pho so we also got an appetizer.

Now I'm hungry all over again!

Do you have a good recipe for Pho? It sounds and looks really good and I would like to try to make it.

Eric - I actually do not have a specific Pho as I just sort of make things up. But, you can try this recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Vietnamese-Pho-Rice-Noodle-Soup-with-Beef-232434

Pho is one of my favorite edible things ever. I get mine at Saigon on University (just west of Dale). It's SO good and their spring roles are my fave!
