Tofu and Pho Vinam

There is this Vietnamese place called Pho Vinam on University Ave (in Riverside) that recently came out with this tofu dish that I have found myself eating about once a week over the past month.

I am a bit picky about how I like my tofu. I often experience tofu dishes to be rather bland in texture (even though it may have absorbed the surrounding flavors). I suppose this might make more sense if I had specific samples to feed you with. Anyway, this tofu dish makes the short list of best tofu dishes I have ever had. It is very flavorful, the vegetables go well with it... and really I have no further analysis other than to quote a friend of mine, "this dish is good enough for meat eaters".

Also, the best tofu I have ever had in my entire life is the tofu in their vegetable pho.

I saw this lady in a pretty skirt walking passed Pershing Square the other day.

My coworker brought everybody a pumpkin cheesecake. I returned the knife and said thank you.

Dear Residents of The Historic Core,

On the corner of Spring and 4th St.

What do you do to recycle cans, plastic bottles, etc? I notice people often leave their recyclables next to a public trash can. Are there people that actually come by to pick up the recyclables? Or do they just get thrown out with the regular trash?

I haven't updated this thing since May!?!?

Pfff time flies. I guess I have been spending my procrastination time on Facebook. Alrighty I'm back for a little bit.
