Snow was not something I was expecting during my brief overnight visit to Salisbury, Maryland. It simply wasn’t in the forecast. So I was mightily surprised when I pulled into my parking space (in my rental Fiat!) at Viet Taste and the sky suddenly turned grey and the snow starting falling down quite heavily.
Not that I needed wintry weather as an excuse to eat pho, of course! I’d normally choose the all-inclusive “Super Bowl,” but as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m not really a fan of the Vietnamese meatballs. I like the texture of tripe, though, so “P3″ gave me that along with eye round and well-done flank. The broth here was actually pretty decent, and I was happily surprised to see Thai basil on the accompanying plate. Am I remembering right that there are fresh herbs growing at the entrance?
