What the Phở-
I have to say, I am not somebody who appreciates even thinly-disguised contempt (gussy it up a little) -- much less open hostility. My food gays walked me through the ordering via text and it was just as they described it: light, bright, fresh, clear, and crisp. But incredibly subtle and sophisticated.
Speaking as someone who was finally ready to sit up and take a little broth: it lived up to the hype. For once, nobody had to hear me say, "this is good, but you should really taste mine. It's better." And it's just so rare to try an entirely new (to me) flavor profile. I walked out saying I had never tasted anything like it (yeah yeah, that's what she said).
From now on, I'll go with carryout though and minimize the emotional exposure.
