Vegan MoFo #6: Pho Saigon Vietnamese - Midtown, Houston, TX
Clearly, I spend a lot of time at Vietnamese restaurants in Midtown. I know I can get vegan food there easily, regardless of who is joining me for a meal. A friend and I went to see Candlebox in Midtown recently and we stopped at Pho Saigon for a quick bite. After asking about the pho, it turns out that they use chicken broth in all the pho dishes. I requested a vegan meal of noodles, veggies, and fried tofu. The server was able to suggest a rice noodle dish, which made me very happy. The fried tofu was good! I topped my meal with sriracha and started eating before I realized I didn't take a photo. Trust me, this dish looked beautiful when presented to me, but I mixed everything together to eat it. The upside of spending so much time in Asian restaurants lately is that my chopstick skills are getting much better.
