Dot Com Pho – A Taste of Japan Edition

For this week’s Dot Com Pho, we wanted to try a new place. Michael Kwan suggested we try A Taste of Asia because it’s good and it’s cheap. The only problem was, A Taste of Asia was closed when we got there! We ended up going to the Japanese ramen restaurant next door.

We had a full house of eleven people showing up for this Taste of Japan edition of Dot Com Pho. While ramen noodle isn’t the same as Pho noodle, it’s close enough and was a nice change of pace from the normal Pho we have ever Saturday. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location and of the next one.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, we have the bank of mom and dad, try to touch a HP Touchpad, to pour or not to pour, Japan’s number one beer made in the Philippines, and Ed Lau being last, again.

    Including Lexi, I count ten… unless I forgot someone. Also, we checked the bottle afterwards. Asahi is brewed in Thailand, not the Philippines, though I think they have breweries in another country or two too.

      You’re right. There was only ten. I miscounted.

      1. Ten is also great numgers … Boy we simply love dot com pho … Why old members are not coming these days …

      2. Hey John,

        It was fun at the Hakkaku Ramen Restaurant wasn’t it? Never again extra noodles at that place though as it got to be too much, at least for me. I ate them but couldn’t finish the soup in spite of it being very delicious.

        What do you say about 5 people including Michael Kwan falling for the Android smart phone?

        The video on the subject of Android from this Pho is here:

        I’ll post what you had to say about getting iPhone 5 video shortly and will send you the link to it.

        1. Hey John,

          I tried to upload the second video about iPhone 5 to YouTube 3 times. It must be doing something like maintenance or whatever because it doesn’t currently accept new uploads.

          I’ll try again in as few hours.

    2. You are right Michael this particular Asahi beer that John had was brewed in Thailand. I had a close look at it.

      1. And I found a proof that the beer was made in Thailand. Here is the video where we talked about it:

  2. Just curious. I thought Pho was Vietnamese?!?


    1. That’s right Mark,

      Pho is Vietnamese but we don’t always go to a Vietnamese restaurant just most of the time. Thus we had Dot several Dot Com Phos without any pho or noodles of any kind.

      The last one was ramen noodle place for example as John points out and Taste of Japan is clearly not Vietnamese.
