Okay, this has bugged me for a few months, and I'm hoping some of you might understand/ be able to share similar stories. Over this academic year, my college cafeteria has been trying to serve what they call pho. Problem is, this soup is little more than a cup of beef or vegetable broth with bowls of wide noodles and a few vegetable to be added in. Worse, no one here seems capable of pronouncing pho correctly, much less make it. Growing up in St. Paul, where there is a large Vietnamese/Hmong population, this drives me up the wall. Okay, rant done, any other baffling food ignorance stories out there?
So I was brainstorming a ideas for a mother's day breakfast dish to make my mom, and I thought to make french toast inspired by sponge toffee, which my mom loves. This would probably end up being a chocolate-stuffed toast, coated with crumbled bits of the toffee. I just thought I'd run it by you guys to see if there was a major problem I was overlooking, as I can find no mentions of something like this online. So are there any glaring holes in this plan?
The thick, juicy burger from Dear Mom is possibly the best bar burger in the Mission.
