Pho Review (UK)

On my final night in London, I knew I wanted to lay low and have a low-key night after nonstop sightseeing for a full week. With an late afternoon flight back home to DC the next day, I wanted to use the evening to pack and get situated to make sure my travel to London Heathrow Airport went as smoothly and stress-free as possible. In looking for soothing, safe places to […]

iPho Noodle House Review

Those who have followed my blog and/or instagram for a while might have picked up on the fact that I am a huge fan of pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup that is my go-to comfort food come winter weather or rainy day.

Pho 88 Restaurant Review

On the coldest day of 2015 (so far) in the sunshine state, there’s only one way to remedy the chill in the air: a nice steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho.

With my mom and a neighborhood friend in tow, we set our sights […]

Little Saigon Restaurant Review

After spending New Year’s Eve a little sick and left out of my family’s tradition of Italian food, I wanted to start 2015 on the right foot with a steaming bowl of broth and noodles. Re-branded […]

Phat Thai Cafe Review

Coming off of a finals week buoyed by Thai food and pho, my taste for Asian cuisine was not extinguished upon returning home. After the wave of energy and emotion that is Christmas crashed after a whirlwind day, my mom and wanted to get out of the house on Boxing Day but were not ready to battle the madness of big shopping centers or the more tourist-y areas of town.  After […]

Pho Dat Thanh Review

Whether its the cold weather, holiday spirit, or single digit day countdown to winter break, it’s getting downright difficult to face the monotony of the dining hall. Don’t get me wrong- my college has been pretty accommodating, but after my Thanksgiving break allowed me to rediscover the deliciousness of home cooking, it’s hard to face the less-than-homemade quality of buffet lines. Taking advantage of a lighter day due to a […]
