Pho #1 (Seriously) and Hi, Auntie Mei!

First, I’d like to say hello to my Auntie Mei. She’s always telling me about the awesome food she’s cooking, and I’m excited to get her recipe for jook! Yummm.

Anyway, last week I finally made it out to Buford Highway where there are tons of Asian restaurants and markets! It was really exciting. I almost peed myself when my boyfriend and I walked into Pho #1. I ordered a large bowl of pho with flank steak, eye of round, and soft tendon, and a thai iced tea with tapioca pearls. It was heaven. I was only disappointed in two things. First, the bean sprouts were kind of sad-looking, but I’m guessing it’s not easy to find fresh bean sprouts in Atlanta. Second, I didn’t get as much tendon as I wanted, but that could be for any number of reasons.

so so so so delicious. it's like a bowl of happiness with a side of awesome.

After lunch we went to the Buford Highway Farmer’s Market. I’ve learned that farmer’s markets here are not the same as the ones in California. Why? Because they’re basically big grocery emporiums and not actually markets for local farmers to showcase their products. Regardless, it was an awesome time. And for next week, I bought pho buillion cubes, pho noodles, eye of round, and tendon. That’s right: I will attempt to make pho. Prepare yourself, ladies and gentlemen.
