Salted plum drink from Pho Nam, Rockville

We had a hankering for pho yesterday, and there’s nothing better with a hot, steaming bowl of pho than a Vietnamese drink like this one. Although it looks like some kind of science experiment, don’t be afraid. That’s just a salted dried plum plunked into a sweet/sour/salty drink. Not salty enough to be off-putting, but just salty enough to bring out the sweetness.

As long as you’re not averse to sipping up floaty bits in your drink, you’ll probably dig it.
