Washington Post Thinks Higher-End Pho Is a Revelation--HAHAHAHA!

BREAKING NEWS! Little Saigon chefs have done all these things for years.
The story is laughable. The Southern Californian jingoist in me wants to be sympathetic to Carman, but the D.C. area has a chingo of Vietnamese--maybe not approaching San Jose or Little Saigon numbers, but sizable. And when Carman gushes about a restaurant that "injects French classicism into Vietnamese cooking," I laughed. It's a whole genre of Vietnamese cooking, Tim!
The only thing I find interesting about the story: non-Vietnamese chefs trying to make pho. Wonder why we don't see that here in OC . . . Instead, otherwise-sane chefs try to make tacos.
