My wife and were schpatzering (that's Yiddish for meandering or wandering) through Chinatown when we got a jonesing for some Vietnamese food. We were looking at window menu of Thai Son when a Vietnamese-American stopped us and told how great the pho is. In we went. My wife's shrimp pho tasted star anise flavored water. My traditional-style bahn mi sandwich tasted like a bad liver sandwich (to some that might redundant). But a bahn mi should be an experience of diverse flavors with balance -- the roast pork, the country pate, the Vietnamese pickles, the cilantro on a fresh, crusty French loaf. Decidedly not what we had at Thai Son. For first class Vietnamese food head over to Ca Bo at 17th and 9th.
