First look: Pho Saigon Star opens near the DU campus

In this week's Chef and Tell interview, which runs tomorrow, I chat with Drew Hardin, exec of Lola, and when I asked him which food trend he'd like to see fall by the wayside, he had this to say: "I don't know if it's the worst trend, but it's definitely one that I don't understand: pho. There are just so many pho places, and every day, I hear someone say they ate at Pho (insert number here) and it was so good. You ask them where it was, and they say, "I don't know -- somewhere on Colfax or Federal." Well, thanks, that sums it up. I think pho is delicious, but there's just too much of it. New trend, please."
