Today was short day at work, so I’ve been enjoying the afternoon off! And it all started with a great lunch date with one super cute husband who would not let me take his photo. He’s such a punk.
I picked Pho Saigon, a delicious Vietnamese Restaurant in downtown Moses Lake. Even though I’ve only been there once before today, its one of my new favorite places. Its so fresh, full of flavor, and really tasty.
I tried my very first Bubble Tea! A creamy sweet pineapple milky smoothie with chewy tapioca pearls. The verdict? I liked it!
For starters we had egg rolls with fish sauce. I really think these are the best egg rolls I’ve had in long time. They are so fresh with flaky crust stuffed full of shredded carrots, onions, and pork. I could probably eat 6 or 60.
Lunch was a Bun Ga Xao “Boon Ga Sao” and the waitress was totally impressed that I knew how to say it, but that’s only because I asked last time.
Stir fried chicken, with lemongrass, garlic, onion, and seasonings served on a bed of lettuce, bean sprouts, fresh herbs, cucumbers, pickled carrots, peanuts and fish sauce.
Yum, yum, yum! At first I thought it was weird to have warm noodles served with lettuce but it totally works. I like to add a little hoisin and soy sauce. Everything is so fresh and really good. I could probably eat there everyday. They have a big menu with vegetarian options including tofu. Its a nice surprise to find a place like this in my small town which is loaded with franchisees, burger joints, and Mexican restaurants.
After our delicious lunch we just walked around the block to a little cupcake place! I had a cookies and cream cupcake and it was nothing special. Seriously. A disappointment.
It was a really great lunch date. Blake and I work separate schedules so we don’t see each other very much during the week, so it was really nice to see each other day. Luckily tomorrow we are going stand-up paddleboarding, so that will be another fun filled day!
