I hadn’t planned to go out for lunch on the day before Christmas.
When I started to review my “Xmas To-Do” list, though, I realised that I had to make a final run to Giant to pick up a few ingredients that I’d somehow overlooked. And I had to do it now, because I was planning a high-end elegant gourmet tres-fancy meal, and those Gorton’s Breaded Seafood Fishsticks take all night to defrost.
I’d heard good things about Pho 14, the little Vietnamese restaurant about a block from the supermarket, and decided to give it a try. There was a time when I practically lived on Vietnamese food, but over the past few years, without really thinking about it, I’ve become more likely to opt for Thai. Pho 14 would remind me of what I’d been missing.
I had the Combination Platter, with stir-fried beef, chicken, pork, and shrimp. Nicely done, very filling, and much better than fishsticks.
