One of my favorite types of food has to be Vietnamese food, more specifically Pho. Living in Pittsburgh there really is not a large selection of places to get Pho. I’ve already told you about Pho Minh, Vietnam’s Pho and Lulu’s Noodles. Well there is a new Pho place is town called Pho Van!
I actually found out about Pho Van through Groupon, where they were offering a $20 gift certificate for $10. Obviously I had to get it and check this new Pho place out! Pho Van is located 2120 Penn Ave. in the Strip District. The first time I went there I went with fellow ThinkComputers staff member Colin. We have been to many different Pho places together. I decided to order the #24, which is combination beef. They let you pick 3 different types of beef, I decided on rare eye of round, well done brisket and tripe.
I’ve had a lot of Pho from many different places and I was quite impressed with Pho Van! The broth tasted excellent and the meat was perfect. I like that I was able to pick 3 different types of meat as well. The #24 Pho combination was only $9 and you can’t beat that! I’ve been back to Pho Van twice since my first visit and if you like tea I would really suggest getting their Dragon Eye Oolong tea. It has to be some of the best tea I’ve ever had! If you are in the Strip and are looking for some great food definitely check out Pho Van!
As most of you know I’m from Pittsburgh and I try to support as many things from Pittsburgh as I can. I wrote about Wiz Khalifa a little while ago and surprisingly I’m talking about another rapper from Pittsburgh, who in my opinion is very good, especially for his age. At only 19 he has a huge following not only in the Pittsburgh area, but online as well. I was actually surprised I had never heard of him before because of how good he is and all of the buzz on the internet. The first song I heard of his is actually one of his most popular songs, Donald Trump. Check out that video below…
He was just recently signed to Rostrum Records the same record label that Wiz Khalifa is on. Earlier this month he released The Best Day Ever mixtape for free on the internet and the entire thing is good. It just has the feel good sound and I really like it. You can listen to the entire mixtape below. I can’t wait to see what this kid has in store for the future!
