Vietnamese food is so aromatic, fresh and healthy and great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At least once a month we go to Pho Pasteur for a fix and we have been going to Pho Pasteur (Le’s) for as long as we can remember with family and now with friends. Our parents would always order a Pho Tai, the aromatic thinly sliced beef with broth, rice noodles, spouts, and mint, but as of late we have been ordering vermicelli noodle bowls.
