I'm still upset that my favorite pho place (Pho Van!) closed a while ago... there one day, gone the next... BUT I do enjoy a nice big bowl of pho from Pho Hung on Hai Ba Trung in District 3. Jen, Nick, and I often have weekly pho dinners here... but last week I took myself out with a book.
Big noodle bowl (no meat) and tra da (iced tea for a nickel)... the total for this lovely-and-delicious dinner... 30,000d... about $1.50 USD.
(The book I was reading, I Am Number Four, is the first in a series that many of the 7th and 8th grade boys in my school love. I finally got around to reading this intense alien book and enjoyed it!)
