it’s no secret that one of my favorite foods is pho. i would like to go to Vietnam one day just to eat. not joking when I say this….last week, for a change, i thought it would be nice to have a different variety of Vietnamese cuisine — 7 courses of beef. There are two well known places for this in the city, Pagolac & Anh Hong. SW and I decided to go to:
it’s like a simpler version of a multi-course meal 🙂
a beef carpaccio..loved the flavors, especially the tartness and mint. very tender.
along with the meat comes a big plate of veggies, including lettuce, basil, mint, cucumbers, bean sprouts, carrots, & pickled daikon, to make your own spring rolls and nuoc mum (fish sauce) to dip them in.
there’s just something really enticing to me about sizzling meat on a hot hot grill…
4th, 5th, & 6th Course:
these come already cooked for you..no more self-cooking necessary! again..you can eat them off the skewers, or make more rolls.
7th and Last Course:
mmm…the hot soup, a perfect way to end the meal!
The last time, I went, it was only $16 per person which seemed like a pretty good deal, but now it’s increased to $18.50. I guess it’s still not bad. Next time, I’d like to try Anh Hong and see how it compares. better or worse?
