Bun No. 28
Now's probably not a good time to be blogging about food since my sadly empty gut is gurgling like mad, but since I'm waiting for my friend to go chow down on dinner, I guess I'll suck it up just long enough to say: Damn if the bun no. 28 at Pho Express ain't a gorgeous treat of bouncy rice noodles crowned by a heap of perfectly seasoned grilled pork and 2 crispety-crunchety imperial rolls (stuffed full of pork, grated carrot, bean sprouts, noodles and garlic). Doused with a generous amount of fish sauce, the dish transports me to the seventh level of heaven (is there such a thing? god help me, I do believe when I've got no. 28 in front of me). Having been to Vietnam, albeit many years ago, I've got to say this rendition ranks right up there with the best of 'em.
