I've been bugging him via PM, but if others are interested, he should totally make a Banana thread!
This "Pho" stuff looks amazing. I've gotta try it if I could ever find it anywhere.
I never thought I could love raw tripe soup that much. Any place worth a damn gives you a plate with fresh herbs, jalapenos, and limes. I always liberally add hoisin sauce. I need to try Pho 75 and this Columbia Heights joint to see if anything measures up to Vietnamtown in Houston.
