Foodporn, Pho Hanoi, Gainesville, Florida, Vietnamese, Restaurant

goi cuonafter overcooked shrimp, tasteless onion rings and lousy service at the Seabreeze Restaurant in Cedar Key, florida, and a tough morning drive, finding the Hanoi was a life saver. Cheerful, efficient staff, a fine bowl of Bun Bo Hue, Cafe Sua Da and a Goi Cuan  (Vietnamese Soft Spring Rolls- Shrimp and Pork Tofu, Grled Park or Chicken, Vermicelli Rice Noodles, Lettuce, and Cilantro wrapped in clear rice paper and served with Peanut Sauce), got me back to better than normal, whatever that might be….

Finally a Real Vietnamese Pho Restaurant comes to Mukdahan, Thailand, or Does it?

Saw the shop last month and almost drove the 100 kilometers from Nakhon Phanom to check it out while at the illuminated Boat Procession Festival in Nakhon Phanom.  It is in the big PTT center on the Northbound side of the 212 as you head out of Mukdahan.

Saturday In Khon Kaen

Khon Kaen Saturday Saturdays are meant for relaxation and that is exactly what I did in Khon Kaen after a little bit of “work” with my buddy Tom from Isaan-Live .  Days don’t get much better than this. The day in Khon Kaen started early as I woke up at 0500 and putzed around the computer until about 0600 and then time for a shower.  Took the dogs out and gave them their breakfast and then prepared my cereal with some bananas.  Tom sent me a message that he was ready to pick my up and I asked for another 15 minutes
