On July 25, local Food Blogger Tim Beeman joined us for our first TTT Express originating in Winston-Salem and traveling to Greensboro. Tim writes,
"I wrote on Monday that Stephanie and I would be going on a little journey and that I would write about it this week. Today is that day.
We started out at our home base, Willows Bistro, and met up with Mary Lacklen and Deanna Watson, both from Triad Local Firstand Triad Touring Tasters. We had a fantastic appetizer of scallops with roasted red peppers and oddly enough, lima beans. Stephanie even ate the lima beans, which isn’t something she usually does. And, we also were treated to a lovely beverage of our choice and we both chose the sangrias because they are the best in town.
After the warm-up, we jumped on a beautiful bus with horseshoed seats, lights and a great stereo system. It looked new. The bus was provided by Matt Logan, Inc.and I — The Man Who Ate the Town — recommend them for your business transfers or “party bus” situations.
The bus took us to Greensboro to Pho Hien Vuong where we met co-owner Trang Trinh (she along with her brother, Ben own this lovely culinary palace) and several friends and fans of the Triad Touring Tasters. Pho Hien Vuong has been around for a while and has become a favorite among Greensboro diners as well as Winston-Salemites willing to cross the dreaded “Sandy Ridge Line” to get their Pho “eat on.” I can see why it has become so popular.
Trang made sure we were comfortable and took wonderful care of us."
