Pho from Hoa Hong 9 Roses

What I learned on Friday:

1.  It only takes 11 minutes to get to 9 Roses from my house if there is no traffic on or around the bridge.  The same cannot necessarily be said for the return.  Darned toll bridge.

2. 9 Roses has combination pho with sliced flank, meatballs and tendon.  It's pretty good, but somehow not quite as good as I imagined it would be.  The broth could be better... could have deeper flavor.

3.  Same with the chao vit (duck rice porridge).  It was good but not great.  I was a bit disappointed.

The last time I went to Hoa Hong, it was a remarkably great meal though, so I may just have been off myself.  My sinuses were terrible and could have been affecting my taste buds.  I'll try again soon and see if I can provide a better perspective.
