What the Pho'!

Literally, that's what the restaurant in Bellevue, WA is called, What the Pho'. Ironically it was our mood last Saturday morning too after our flight to Palm Springs, CA got cancelled and we couldn't fly out until Monday am.! The Ulins were NOT a happy family that morning! However, quick thinking Brad thought of a happy door prize of going to our favorite Pho shop in Bellevue for a steaming bowl of goodness and some fresh spring rolls. We all chose the flank steak and eye of round steak as our meat, added our bean sprouts and various favorite condiments to the broth. I love the fresh lime squeeze, the fresh basil and cilantro and a dash of Asian hot sauce (the one with the rooster on the label).  It was a nice bit of warmth in the POURING rain. We'll get to the sun soon enough we thought.  Making lemonade after getting served some lemons:) It's our Vietnamese comfort food, kinda like Grandma's chicken soup. My son Alan said "it was like heaven in a bowl". We agreed. Our attentive, friendly waiter said "gama" was "thank you" in Vietnamese. "Gama" to Brad for bringing us out of our funk!
