In the Soup

Vietnamese restaurants all around the country probably experienced an uptick in business last night as a comprehensive post on the life-giving Vietnamese breakfast soup pho appeared on the blog MetaFilter. With links to websites, blogs, interesting articles, and recipes, it’s a one-stop placeholder for all your pho needs.

The post garners a rather high 95 comments, turning MetaFilter briefly into Chowhound as commenters debate the merits of tripe and tendon versus flank and brisket; argue over whether to add sauces and sprouts, and discuss the best places to get a bowl of pho in their city.

The most prevalent comment? Variations on “I know what I’m eating tonight.”
