Little Saigon


Here I am at a favorite hangout - Little Saigon, in Montclair. I love that it's open all day. They bring you a pot of perfectly brewed tea the minute you sit down - never any charge for that. I always have a book with me, since you can sit there as long as you like. Who needs a cafe with an option like this?
There are 218 separate items listed on the menu. This is one of my favorites - #35 - Pho Thit Nurong, or BBQ Pork Rice Noodle Soup. It's $5.25. The smaller plate holds all the fresh extras that you add yourself: bean sprouts, jalapeno slices, fresh Thai basil, and lime wedges. There are also assorted condiments on the table: chili paste, hot sauce, fish sauce, and soy.
It's barely half a mile away, so I ought to walk there, right? Unfortunately it's not a very nice walk. I wish it were otherwise. So, because I can, I drive. Perhaps I'll reconsider when the weather warms up.
Speaking of which: what was with all the BIRDS yesterday? They were everywhere!? Are they returning from the south? Do they think it's spring? Do they know that there is a blizzard on its way?

I think all the birds are looking for new homes because I finally got rid of all of the birds nests in all of the windows of my house...they are madly looking for a new place to live :-)
