Pho is one of my favourite foods. I have eaten it all over the country, and I love it every time. I love all kinds of Vietnamese dishes, but pho is my fave.

The first time I ever ate Vietnamese food was at one of the restaurants in the Hong Kong City Mall in Houston, Texas. (The Hong Kong City Mall is extremely awesome, by the way. And despite its name, it leans towards being super duper Vietnamese.) I ordered what the menu called “seafood pho,” which isn’t actually pho, but hu tieu. (Something I didn’t learn until years later.) I LOVED it. I had a really bad cold and it made me feel sooo much better. Just the memory of that moment with my giant bowl soup makes my heart skip a beat.

Here is a little something I made in Inkscape… pho!
