Pho Bang Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #420

I was in the mood for Vietnamese food for lunch today. My absolute favorite place for Vietnamese, Tan Dinh, is now closed on Sundays.

Looks like the sign on the… Continue reading Pho Bang Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #420

Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

When I woke up today it was raining. Most people wake up and think about what the day might hold for them. I wake up and immediately think about what I’m going to eat. For some reason the rain put me in the mood for Pho. Since I was hungry, I headed to the nearest… Continue reading Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

Pho Orchid, Metairie, LA Report #326

It hit me I like Tan Dinh so much I hadn’t been anywhere else for Vietnamese food in a long time. A couple of people told me this place was good, so we figured we’d give it a try.

Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

Can’t decided between Vietnamese or Chinese food?  Don’t stress it.  Come here and have both.  This place is located less than a block off the Westbank Expressway in Gretna, but I drove by over 1,000 times never knowing it was there.  If you’re driving towards the river on the ground level of the expressway, a… Continue reading Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

It snowed today in New Orleans.  In case you don’t know, that hardly EVER happens!  When it gets cold like this every normal New Orleanian’s thoughts turn to one dish.  GUMBO!  But since I’m not normal, and too damn lazy to make a pot of gumbo, my thoughts turned to Pho!  That delicious Vietnamese beef… Continue reading Tan Dinh Vietnamese Bistro, Gretna, LA Report #61

MoPHo, New Orleans, LA Report #18

  Pho is a Vietnamese soup, and this place offers several different types of Pho.  As the name implies it’s Asian cuisine with numerous twists.  So straight to the food.

Shrimp and pork spring rolls – Just OK.  Peanut dipping sauce… Continue reading MoPHo, New Orleans, LA Report #18
