Twin Cities Lunch | Quang in Minneapolis

Summer and Porch 1 087.JPG

When I was in high school, I used to go to the Market Building in downtown Roanoke and have pho for lunch. It was delicious and I loved it. Then, the building closed for renovations and new restaurants took the place of old restaurants and I went like four years without a bowl of pho.

But then, a few months ago, my friends Daci and Rachel and I got together for a little girls night at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (we're wild, I know) and decided that we absolutely needed Vietnamese food. After sitting down and awkwardly leaving what ended up being a chain restaurant, we found ourselves at Quang, which is where we wanted to be all along, because it is also where the bowls of soup are enormous, the spring rolls are heavenly, and the menu is packed full of gluten-free options.

My life is once again complete.

I have seriously not stopped thinking about it since I went with my girlfriends in April, so Rob and I finally had a chance to go over the weekend. We ordered the shrimp and pork spring rolls, I had a bubble tea, and we each got a bowl of Pho Tai (#505 on the menu). It was awesome.
