The Pho Files - Chicken Soup at Good Buddy
This past Saturday, I had noodles for a cause! Prior to attending a public apology made to an Aboriginal Elder who was wrongly ousted from City Centre Mall by mall security, I had the meal he was likely having at the time of the unfortunate incident: chicken noodle soup from Good Buddy, a Vietnamese fast food outlet in the food court. I used to live on the stuff when I ate there more often. At only $5.69 it is cheap and a reasonably large portion. I would not call this pho, as the broth lacks the depth of flavour for that, but the noodles lean in the pho direction. I find them rather thin and firm in texture, making the soup easier to eat than actual pho.
