Oh hell yeah. I'd only make it for myself, and then only really work at getting the broth close enough. Star Anise is pretty important to get it just so.

Pho Hung at the edge of Chinatown and Pho 88 (Dundas and Spadina I believe) are my go-to guys.

You could bread and deep fry a shoe and it'd taste good.

I did. It was one of SJ's old electric blue crocs. I'm not a fan of crocs, but I was a fan of a deep fried one!

Maybe next time I'll put cheese in the middle... he DOES have the left shoe still.

I'd imagine the croc material would melt into a gooey loveliness not unlike a heated Kraft single.

Similar, yes. But squeakier. And blue. Very bright blue.

on the topic of greasy food - anyone ever make their own fries? onion rings?

i went on a fishing trip in the fall, at a time when the fish just aren't biting. i took a bag of homemade batter for frying the fish, but we didn't catch anything worth keeping. pike are just too big a pain to clean. instead we made onion rings using the batter and deep fried them in a pot of oil over the open camp fire. one of my most proud culinary achievements. they were greasy as hell, and with a cooler full of cold beers by the lake were just about the perfect thing to eat.

Me and the fiancee make home made fries and onion rings all the time. Also, our new french fry love is making sweet potato fries.

I've never been a huge fan of everyday fries, but when they're homemade it's completely different. The trick is to deep fry them twice. Lightly first, let them rest, then once more.






ALso, I am a fan of Pho, but my FAVORITE soup is definitely Tom Yum Goong.

Some dissolved sugar in the water the uncooked fries are soaked in is another trick for extra outer crispiness.

Nope, looks good though.

And call me crazy, but I don't really like fries.

I'd rather have mashed potatoes.

Freak.

The garlic mashed from The Keg are insanely good though and Mean Biatch makes a mean batch.

A little au jus and you're laughing.

That rooster chili sauce is good as well, but too much and I get a mexican toothache.
