this past weekend, i tried pho for the first time. many people would say that technically i didn't try pho (it's traditionally made with beef broth), but regardless, it was delicious. i couldn't get the craving out of my head, so we went to silk, our favorite vietnamese restaurant in portland. i took my time slurping up the large bowl of sweet and salty vegetarian broth with mushrooms, bok choy, tofu, fresh herbs, and rice noodles. i squeezed lime and sriracha all over the top and deemed it the most comforting meal i've had in a while.
