Fried food goes a long way! I wasn’t very hungry most of yesterday; consumed some audition fuel around 11
Organic lowfat cottage cheese, strawberries, and Justin’s Peanut Butter (heated and thinned into a sauce)
By the time I felt a rumbly in the tumbly again it was very late in the afternoon. Dinner plans were in a few hours so I ate nature’s perfect snack…
….which left me with a voracious appetite at 7 for my Date with Kate
She came all the way to my side of town to get our Pho on
It may look like we were the only ones at Simply Pho You but the place did fill up at one point. The food comes out so quickly that most people were in and out, while we lounged around chatting for over an hour!
First comes the raw onions (look away Kath) which we doctored up ourselves with table condiments
Oyster sauce + chili paste
Then we customized our soups as well!
I ordered the Pho Ga (Chicken) and asked for some veggies to be thrown in
Basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, and lime
More rooster sauce
Mmmmm! Everything was nicely flavored, even the noodles. I tried a sip of Kate’s tofu pho (this is the only place in K-town I’ve found that has a vegetarian option) and the seasoning in that was delightful as well.
Did a decent job of finishing everything, save a few bites of onions and broth
On the drive back, we stopped by Koo’s Grill for dessert.
Kate’s first Ho Dduk (and my second!)
We ate the sticky sweet rice pancakes while wandering around the grocery store, which was blasting Madonna at 9:30 pm.
As if my ladies’ night out couldn’t have been more perfect, Kate hooked me up with some LOOT
Julius might want his paws painted too.
