Hello all, this is a short and sweet blast, to let you know that today you are invited to “Beat The Heat”, which is a celebration of Latin flavors offered by Pollo Campero.  Today only June 21, 2013, you can taste any Latin flavored drink, without making a purchase. If you live in Houston and the surrounding areas, visit your nearest Pollo Campero and you will be given a complimentary Latin flavored beverage of your choice.  Their website is http://www.campero.com, the flavor offerings vary by location, so keeping that in mind, here’s a sample of what I tasted when I visited the Missouri City location. In the picture below, there is mango, guava, and horchata  drinks, I also tasted the hibiscus tea which was my absolute favorite beverage.

Welcome back to my blog, today I am sharing a couple of tasty dishes I had a couple of weeks ago at a place called “Pho Tan Loc” or Vietnamese Noodle House.  This was my first visit to this establishment, therefore, I simply stuck to the dishes that I was familiar with when I visited other Vietnamese restaurants.  I started my meal with the “Pho bo”, which is beef noodle soup.  The soup consists of lean beef, hot beef broth, thin rice noodles, cilantro, basil, jalapenos, bean spouts, green and white onions, and lime wedges.  The broth of the soup is normally made from beef or chicken  and the veggies and noodles are usually served on the side as a garnish.  This is a great soup to start the day according to several of my Vietnamese associates, as it sustains one throughout the day.

Therefore, I tried this soup around 10:00 am, and I had a small bowl, which was a very generous portion.  The soup was bursting with flavor, and I like to add the garnishes little by little when I enjoy my pho, that way I can have my soup taste exactly how I want it.

The next  dish I tried was the Grilled Chicken and Rice with a fried egg on top.  The chicken is grilled, seasoned, and is served with cilantro, tomato and cucumber salad, fish sauce, and an egg sunny side up, if requested.  My egg was cooked a little longer than I normally like it, but I enjoyed my meal.

The Vietnamese Noodle House (Pho Tan Loc)  is located at: 11603 Texas Hwy 6, in Sugar Land Texas, they are open Tuesday thru Sunday from 10:00 am – 10:00 pm and they are closed on Monday.  Check it out!
