August and I are not the most adventurous eaters on the planet and we tend to not eat a whole lot of ethnic food, so when August wanted Pho last Friday he called up some of our friends who have a little broader palates. They recommended Taste of Asia and we enjoyed it so much that not only did we have dinner there Friday night but we also had lunch there Saturday. What can I say…when we like something, we just can’t get enough of it.
Our friends recommended the spring rolls.
They were served with a side of lettuce, and much like lettuce wraps, you were supposed to wrap the bite-sized pieces of spring roll up into the lettuce and then dip them into fish sauce.
These spring rolls were what convinced us to come back the next day, they were so good! Crispy and flavorful. Friday night August and I ordered a huge bowl of Pho with chicken to share and it was really good. Before moving to San Antonio I’d never even heard of Pho which is a Vietnamese noodle soup. Thankfully the noodles are made from rice flour and perfect for someone with Celiac disease. But Saturday afternoon we decided to try some other entres from the menu. I went with the Kung Po Chicken.
Honestly, this part of the meal was just ok. It was marked as spicy on the menu and I was expecting it to have a little more kick to it. August ordered some type of garlic chicken which looks terrible in the picture but actually tasted pretty good. Overall I’d have to say the pho was the best entre we had though!
Even though we’ve found chinese food to be relatively off limits for August, there were plenty of gluten-free options on the menu for him to eat since most of the noodle options were rice-based. And obviously since we went twice in one weekend, it didn’t cause any negative side effects, if you know what I mean.
