Pho Saigon

In the International Food Court on Fourth and Yamhill
Wonton Soup
Cost: $5.00

I love this place, and have been meaning to write about it. With all my bean and bento making, I haven't been eating lunch out a lot.

Pho Saigon is just a tiny corner to the front-right of the International Food Court, run by what I assume is a Vietnamese family. The food is genuine, fast, and very good.

Pho is not ready to hand to customer as soon as they've paid--it must be assembled from broth and fresh ingredients. It is served traditionally, with bean sprouts, lime, and mint on the side for you to add. No, I didn't know this ahead of time--I asked friends. Next time, I'll do it right! Well, except for the chopsticks. I am hopeless with the things, and had to ask for a fork in order to fish out those wonderful noodles.

It is a dish to sit down with for your entire lunch hour. Bring a friend or a book.
