All Pho All Stars. They have the classics but no surprises. Quality is decent but nothing really ‘pops’.
Pho itself was the highlight. Spring rolls were mediocre but acceptable. There appears to be a cluster of Asian eateries in this strip mall, so could be a good way to do a noodle hit-and-run. Visit the Dollar Tree or TJ Maxx afterwards for novelty value.
There was a large family table nearby with a baby with a huge, luminous head. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a head that large – even on an adult. It was mesmerising. Of course, they thought I was some weirdo, because I couldn’t help staring at their baby. But you had to see it. It was a massive cantaloup. I wish I could have taken a picture but that would probably have caused them to call the cops. Since then, I’ve noticed that a lot of Asian babies from China, Korea and Vietnam have massive craniums. Sometimes, so much so that they look like cute little schwas.
