phò in paris

Yes, we went to Paris to eat Vietnamese food.

We were tired of non-Asian food and there was a Vietnamese restaurant at a corner near our hotel. I guess it makes sense if you think about it but I always get surprised when I see Asian people who speak only French and no English (and sometimes also not whatever Asian language of their ethnicity). They’re Asian-French, analogous to Asian-American.

In any case, their Pho was pretty good— more of the Basil flavour in their broth, and the lack of oyster sauce and sriracha sauce was nice because I could just appreciate the flavours of the soup itself. Those nice red peppers gave a good kick, though, and all three of us got the spicy that we needed to survive in Europe.
