Friday night we tasted big Zinfandels at Tarragona and picked up a nice bottle of Paso Robles Zinfandel by Rosenblum Cellars in California. Paula and Michael at Tarragona slipped us passes to see the movie Mondovino. That was swell of them and hopefully we will catch that flick this week.
We went from the Zinfandels of California to the soups of Vietnam when we left the car at one end of Broadway and walked to other to Than Brothers for dinner. You can't beat a steaming bowl of pho the size of wash basin, plus a homemade cream puff for $4.25. It's always best to walk to and from the car to get Than Brothers because the soup is very filling and you need to be standing in order to breathe. I've scaled down to the medium bowl but no more. From now on only the small bowl for me. It would be nice to leave Than Brothers without feeling like I need a stretcher.
