Phở Gà Off the Streets of Hanoi
As amazing as that last meal was, the portions weren't very big, which meant that I still had room to try some other goodies off the streets. So I got this bowl of chicken phở gà, which only on this trip did I realize was a bit of a specialization of Hanoi rather than a cop-out for the real thing.
And while this bowl of silky noodles was good, especially with some black pepper as well as those greasy youtiao-like quay things dipped in it, it still didn't really do it for me, as it just tasted like your everyday soup noodles rather than a proper bowl of phở. No worries though; beef phở was surely coming tomorrow.
