Las Margaritas isn’t just about the margaritas Wednesday, Oct 23 2019

You say “pho,” I say “fuh.” Which is the right way to say it, anyway? Inspired by a couple of bowls of pho, er, fuh, at Phi Pho (“Fee Fuh”), a new, fast-casual pho shop in St. Matthews, I dug into the roots of pho, and – somewhat to my surprise, since I thought I … Continue reading Pho Phi gives your money’s worth
