When touring I often eat Asian food because I find that Thai and Vietnamese restaurants use a lot of fresh ingredients and they usually serve good quality food. Here are a couple of finds from the October run…

In Richmond, Virginia, we found a little Vietnamese neighborhood and discovered a fantastic restaurant called Pho Tay Do in a very unassuming little building.

The food was excellent and the decor quirky, and I usually prefer quirky over fancy. Is that Princess Diana with Prince Harry… and Elvis?

The paintings and cutouts were created by the owner.

In Pawling, New York, we went to a Thai restaurant called Thai Elephant 2. Above the fireplace there is a Buddha image that is a concave relief. The face eerily turns and follows a person around the room… I think I have a video of that and will look for it.
