VKitchen in Ann Arbor

VKitchen in Ann Arbor

Trying out a new Vietnamese restaurant in Ann Arbor today. 

VKitchen, located in Ann Arbor (in the Colonnade shopping center) is very subtle and looks like just another strip-mall diner from the outside, but it would be a huge mistake for any Pho lover to pass this one up. Now, our family favorite in Ann Arbor, VKitchen offers a wide selection of Vietnamese cuisine including the usual appetizers one might expect to find at afr Vietnamese restaurant, Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches), and of course, Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). As friends of ours know, Pho could very well be in the top five favorite things for our family, ranking right along up there with Korean bulgogi and bi bim bap, and we found that our pho today to be some of the best we've had.

XJapan was Japan's biggest metal band. From 1977, to "The Last Live" on December 31, 1997 they rocked their way into fame, selling out the Tokyo dome 18 times. XJapan's five member group was probably one of the most influencial of my junior high and high school life, resonating with many of the same feelings I had during those days.
