Oh east coast I do love your beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, large big city life, and warm Atlantic Ocean. But you don’t have it down when it comes to FOOD. California definitely tops you in that category.
Here are some of the foods that I’ve had since I’ve been here.
Pho - Vietnamese noodle soup. This one was rare steak. Now you may think I actually ate rare steak. No no no! The broth is so hot so when they bring out the pho the very thin slices of meat are cooked in the broth. Mix it up, put your favorite veggies, and eat away!
Tip - Before you start adding to your pho ALWAYS taste the broth first. This will give you a baseline of how the rest of your pho experience will be like. It shouldn’t be too watery and should have lots of flavor.
Tri-Tip Sandwich from Dog House Grill. Tri-Tip was first popularized in Santa Monica, CA and is a favorite in the Central Valley. The tri-tip is cut from the bottom sirloin of the cow and tastes DELISH after being marinated and seasoned. It’s also great for eating while watching my Mavericks beat my dad’s Spurs.
Tip – If you’re going to season it at home try out Pappy’s seasoning. A secret tip from my dad.
