Pho Bac

Pho Bac is on Buford Highway in the same shopping center as Little Hot Pot. It's a pretty big Vietnamese noodle shop. Like most of these places, it's all business, no atmosphere.

I had the brisket soup. The broth was quite hearty. The side salad includes a leaf that doesn't look like mint but certainly tastes minty; I wish I knew what it was called. I'm still not sure exactly how to rank the various pho spots in town, but I did enjoy Pho Bac. And, in general, I think that pho makes a great lunch---well balanced but not too heavy.

Aurora CO: Cedar Creek Pub

Cedar Creek Pub is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. My CU Denver friends and I adjourned there for good food and discussion. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was excellent: crispy, fluffy beer batter coating tender, moist cod. The fries were great, too.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Kalona IA: JW's Foods

We took a drive on a beautiful day to Kalona and had a very enjoyable lunch at JW's Foods. Kalona is a small town about 20 miles south of I-80 year Iowa City. The area seems to be a mix of Amish and Mennonite. JW's foods is a grocery store with a restaurant inside; it is located at the edge of town near the grain silos. The service was very helpful and friendly. The food was pretty darn good. I couldn't resist the tenderloin sandwich and I wasn't disappointed. As is traditional for these sandwiches, the tenderloin hangs out well over the bun. The pork tender was tasty and tender with excellent breading. Debbie had a beautiful turkey sandwich handmade from the deli. She reports that everything, from the bread to the meat, was outstanding.
