Chinatown

So, this weekend I think I found Atlanta's version of Chinatown...well it's more like Chinatown/Little Mexico. There an area on the northeast side where a couple miles of road are lined with mexican/korean/vietnamese/chinese restaurants and shops.

I went there this weekend in search of pho. It was very strange because NOTHING was in english...well, the street signs were in english, but other than that, nothing. Even more confusing, most of it was written in symbols, so I had a hard time telling what the shops were.

Eventually, I found a pho resturant, Pho Hoa, and went in for a bowl of pho and to read the Sunday paper. The waiter was surprised that I didn't order by number...it's kinda fun being able to at least order in the language (the whole 6 words I know).

I have to say that Pho Nam beats this place hands down. The bowl of pho was smaller here with less noodles, but it came with more meat. Also the cafe sua da wasn't strong enough. I think I'm going to have to request for them to use more coffee, it was REALLY watery. It's a nice enough place to go on a Saturday afternoon to read the paper and eat. I'd like to be able to go shopping, but I'm pretty sure the clothes won't be long enough :(

Glad to hear that you were able to find a place to get some pho... I know I couldn't survive without it. I've been hitting up some pho joints with some coworkers and yeah I like my pho place better back home, but I think this one is starting to grow on me, I dunno.
