Random Photos: Super Bowl Sunday 2010

The best part of Super Bowl Sunday is, without a doubt, the food!

The host of the party I attended had a very tasty east-meets-west spread. Snacks included chips, dips (7-layer, salsa, french onion), cilantro shrimp, and bánh something-or-other (I forgot to ask what it was called):

Phở is a Vietnamese noodle soup. My host's ingredients are traditional: A savory beef broth (that he began preparing the day before), thin rice noodles, slices of several cuts of beef, tripe and meatballs. The garnishes provided were bean sprouts, Thai basil, thin onion slices, red chili peppers, chopped green onions, chopped cilantro and lemon wedges. Chili sauce and hoisin sauce are used as condiments. I added a little nước béo (liquid beef fat) for extra flavor. YUM!

Put all of those goodies in a bowl, add a beverage and find out what a real super bowl is!

We enjoyed other delights like: margaritas, chè (I think it was chè Thái) and cheesecake.

It was quite the shindig!
