I’m trying to cook Vietnamese Pho for dinner. I know I won’t be able to get it exactly like the restaurants, but I try my best. However, I’ve realized I have a bad habit of wanting to add the wrong spices to things. I just took a look at my spice cabinet and chose “Bangkok Blend” (because Thailand is close to Vietnam) and “Trinidad” spice (cause Trinidad is island-y and so are limes). This choice will either turn out to be brilliant or completely ridiculous.
