Yeh's Bakery and Pho Hoang

I was in Flushing for an interview last Thursday and got a bite to eat before and after.

I didn't think to plan ahead and was just trying to get to the interview on time. Google maps had Yeh's Bakery landmarked so I gave it a try.

Yelp reviews seemed to suggest that their green tea cake was good, but it was 8 am, so I got a corn pastry concoction instead. Now that I think of it, I'm not sure if my reasoning made any sense.

Anyway, it was good. A bit greasy, but very tasty. I would eat it again for breakfast.

One of the residents suggested either going to Corner 28 or Pho Hoang for an early dinner.

I decided to walk up Main St and was happy I did after passing this neoclassical post office. I'm a big fan of neoclassical post offices. This one reminded me of the one in Williamstown.

I stopped by Corner 28, but I just wasn't in the mood for it. Just seemed too meaty and starchy. So I got Pho.

This was an average Pho, but I liked it. What I love about Pho is that it is hot and refreshing. It is able to achieve two seemingly contradictory characteristics. This one was no exception.

One more interview to go.
