    Very nice, but I can't let you get away with posting some of those photos without an explanation.  Green Waffles???  Based on the pix leading up to that point, I'm guessing the color comes from cilantro, but would still appreciate clarification.
     
    And not a single shot of any actual Pho at the Pho Fest?
     
    It'll be interesting to see how Vietnamese and NOLA cultures crossover and influence each other as the former become more prevalent down your way.  And let's face it, is there really that much difference between a Po' Boy and a Banh Mi Sandwich?  Both take their cues from the French.

    The green comes from Pandan, a floral green grass that's common in Vietnamese cooking. I did not try the waffles.
     
    It was in the 90s so I did not want a boiling cauldron of pho, sorry, there is a shot of all the garnishes that accompanied the soups.
     
    Once I started in on the kebabs, spring rolls, banh mi and egg rolls there was no looking back. Pho is just a tiny part of pho fest.
