The loving embrace of an egg roll keeps eggs from falling in with the wrong crowd, proving even more effective than commercials that crack open people to show eggs what their brains look like on drugs. Avoid ovoid shenanigans with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian fare at Pho Mama in Carrollton.
Pho Mama's menu fuses flavors from a mélange of Asian cultures, from Vietnamese and Thai tastes to spicy Indian touches. Nosh on gullet-pleasing grains by selecting one of the eatery's fried-rice ($6.50–$8.75) or steamed-rice ($6.50–$7.95) plates, which serve as playgrounds for posses of grilled beef, chicken, and pork. The curry-chicken flat-noodle dish shows off its tender poultry contents ($6.95), and the tofu pad thai blends crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, and yellow and green onions with protein-packed tofu ($6.25). Sweetly conclude a meal with a dessert of tapioca in coconut milk, which mixes thick pearls of flavor into a tall glass filled with the product of a freshly milked tree ($2.50).
