Tidbits from the past few weeks

Some brief notes on meals from the past few weeks that don't individually warrant full posts:

1. Pho Nam in Sunnyvale.  A Vietnamese colleague of my dining companion had apparently touted this place as having the best pho in Silicon Valley.  I enjoyed my pho, to be sure, but it didn't seem that memorable (or better than that pho place at the intersection of San Antonio and El Camino....maybe my pho taste buds just aren't that refined?).

2. Tofu crepe at Crepeville in Davis.  I always order this at Crepeville, and it's never let me down.

3. Moussaka and rice pudding (two separate meals) at Cafe220.  Again, staples, and very satisfying as usual.

4. Homemade french toast for breakfast, using La Brea French bread from Whole Foods.  My latest iteration was stuffed with some lemon curd and, right before serving, sprinkled with sliced almonds.  Yum!
