Oh Pho Sho

Last night we rode out to Pho Cafe in Silverlake. The windstorms from the night before made for a night ride in LA like I've never seen. The sky was clear and the air was clean.

This is the route we took from Venice to DTLA to Silverlake and back.

We made it to the restaurant in great time. The service was less than par but the downtime gave us plenty of opportunities to go MacGyver on our cameras. Anyway, this place has good food, reasonable prices and hip/fusion decor. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking to grab a quick bite but if you're in good company, the food is worth the wait.

Itadakimas! Lime charbroiled steak with egg roll and shrimp over noodles (cold). Also known as #17.

Like most things, food also looks better through Feaver's camera.

Free beer! The house comped our beer to atone for the service (or lack thereof). Taiwan beer starts like Sprite and finishes like a lychee... not bad.

What seemingly appeared to be the house specialty. Slow drip coffee over condensed milk. This stuff is like your socks after a 31 mile bike ride; potent.

On another note, this marks my 100th blog post! Hooray-Hoorah! Bikes, food, beer and friends... yep, that pretty much sums up the previous 99.
