This has to be one of my favorite restaurant set meals: Pho Hoa‘s com thit nuong cha gio. It consists of grilled pork (com thit), those lovely spring rolls filled with pork, veggies, and sotanghon (cha gio), and fried rice (nuong) flavored with soy and mixed with finely chopped carrots and green beans. Super-satisfying!
Frankly speaking, unless you’re one of those sensitive types with a ton of food allergies, I can’t imagine anyone who would say no to fresh, ripe strawberries!
…is my mother’s pastel con pollo. Think of it as chicken pot pie kicked up several notches: a very short crust covers a delectable filling made with chicken, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, Vienna sausage, chorizo de Bilbao, and green olives all cooked in a smooth, creamy sauce bechamel. Alas, Mom only makes this once a year – but it’s so good that it’s definitely worth the wait. ^_-
Happy New Year, everyone! I know this post is rather late, but I hope the year came in well for all you dear SybDive readers.
