Celebrating Alone at Pho Bac Vietnamese Restaurant
That was the last day of my 3-day training engagement at NTC Manila. I was so tired and hungry but happy with the result of my training with the Electro Cadets of the Norwegian Training Center. I seemed to feel that I made a difference in the lives of my participants (oh well, I hope the feeling is mutual). One of the participants even had a one-on-one session with me which I normally do when there is a request or when the situation calls for it. We celebrated the conclusion of our seminar with boxes of pizza and soft drinks.
Kuya AR , NTC’s company driver brought me back to the hotel still with a good feeling of what had transpired in our seminar. I decided to go out and eat to celebrate—unfortunately, I was alone that time. it’s okay, I told myself. It would be nice sometimes to be alone to give yourself a break and for some personal reflections.
This time, I decided to try Vietnamese Cuisine. Vietnamese food is another delightful type of cuisine that catches the palate of the modern tongue. Vietnamese food is the new addition to the collection of well-loved cuisines, along with Italian, Chinese and American. Its cuisine is often emphasized to serve the freshest vegetables, exotic herbs and tasteful varieties of rice and sauces. Its exotic tastes are now combined with some modern twists to cater to the different preferences of food lovers. Vietnamese foods are not only delicious, but they are known for being low in calories and of course being healthy.
Pho Bac Vietnamese restaurant is located in Glorietta 2 at the Ayala Center just a walk away from my hotel. I tried the Hanoi Beef and Rice Noodle Soup , a savory and hearty soup made with succulent beef, hot chili sauce and bean sprouts. I also ordered the ever popular Crispy Spring Rolls Deep fried rolls wrapped in rice paper with a mixture of ground pork, chicken, crab meat, black mushroom, and clear rice noodles. Served with fish sauce and an assortment of green leaves, mint, and cilantro. The Bottomless Ice Tea completed my celebration.
