mama pho

“My mama makes some good pho. Like every time she makes pho, I have to have two bowls. Not one, but two. She uses real beef broth, real beef, and the bones and everything. Real A-1 stuff. Good. It ain’t like these restaurants, pre-made—just broth, noodles, meat. We have a loving relationship, but we ain’t really too much in each other’s lives because she stay like two hours away. I moved here on my own because I had to get away. She stay in Plaquemines—it was too country for me. There’s no Walmart, nothing out there.”
