there are a few restaurants in our office building, but the one i go to the most is phô, a vietnamese restaurant which specialises in (cough) phô, a noodle-rrific soup. i will confess that i don't actually like phô all that much (i like dry noodles more than wet ones), but there's plenty of other items on the menu for me.
the thing i usually order to go is cold noodles (or as it's sometimes known at phô, cold noodle noodles)--a salad of rice vermicelli noodles, barbecued meats, various shredded raw veggies, and crushed peanuts. it's served with a too fishy fish sauce and vinegar, so sometimes i swap it out with a peanut sauce or finadene.
it is a lovely, lovely dish, especially on hot summer days, but a series of unfortunate events involving long lines and traffic, led me astray and i filled my belly with somethin' else. eh. i'll have it for dinner.
