Pho All Seasons, Des Moines, IA
This is the best Vietnamese food that I have had in Des Moines. I am still finding my way with Vietnamese food, mostly because there is a lot about it that is a little too meaty. I love the abundance of vegetables in the cuisine, but there is an equal part that includes organ meat and sinew and fat that I am trying to figure out a way around. I am sure that I will get there, and the journey has been fun. This is a place that I would definitely stop at again.
The bahn mi is excellent. This is the litmus test for a Vietnamese place, and Pho All Seasons passed with flying colors. The sandwich comes in wide variety of meats, and that is always a good sign. We got the traditional pork filling and it was very good. Fresh bread, liver pate, and a good balance of heat with slices of jalapenos, herbal with the cilantro, and sour with the carrot and daikon pickled vegetables. The spring rolls were also excellent and come with a number of flavored meat fillings. The dumplings were good as were the egg rolls.
