I love pho.  Thankfully the Vietnamese have brought their amazing noodle soup to our shores so that I can enjoy this delicious meal.  Now I typically order a basic beef pho or flank steak pho, but my friend always orders his with soft tendon.  This is something we will just never agree on.  Why would you take a perfectly good noodle soup and mess it up with tendon?

I am definitely not a fan of the Jello-like soft tendon.  I can’t help but think of my own tendons that connect my muscles and that makes it hard to for me to eat.  For some reason I don’t have this problem when I’m eating pretty much any other kind of meat.  I’m almost positive it’s the texture.  It just freaks me out.  Even when I coat it in Sriracha.  I just can’t do it.  The mind is amazing when it comes to making you nauseous.

Of course, I’ll still take all the other types of pancakes and waffles there are out there.  It’s just the Swedish pancakes are the best ones.
