I tried Vietnamese soup or "Pho" once, years ago. I was completely unimpressed. Since then I have developed a taste for foods flavored with fish sauce, cilantro, sricha, etc. Tastes change. So today when I spotted this blog post from Food Republik, I was intrigued. For one thing, the photo looked wonderful.
It was time to make our lunch. I had rice sticks, cilantro, edaname chicken broth, fish sauce, etc, etc. No chicken. But I did have frozen shelled shrimp. So I made shrimp pho. And it was so good.
