I haven't posted in nearly two weeks, because I have been pretty damn sick. I went a really long time without being sick, and then, BAM! So, anyway, now I'm back. As I've been sick and boring, there isn't much to really blog about.
I did get to eat these fine pancakes. That was awesome. Also, I've been doing a lot of (not) exciting schoolwork.
Billy has been driving everyone in this house crazy. He chases the dogs' tails (even when they are in their crates). He jumps into the bunny cage and plays with the bundiks' hay. He randomly tackles the other cats. He's really been making us pay for taking his balls.
I pulled back a blanket recently and caught Mr. Biff and his arch-nemesis, The Captain, cuddling while holding hands. Mr. Biff is not pleased. However, all the furless dogs are super happy that the weather is finally warming up. Furlesses hate being cold.
Lastly, Eddie is still evil/cooler than everyone.

Dac Hoa is a Vietnamese restaurant on Monroe Avenue. They have been around for a long time, and have a pretty good following. One of the things they're known for is their daily fresh made BBQ. We ordered the BBQ pork appetizer, which was tender and incredibly tasty.
My dad was really excited about the Pho. It's a big bowl of broth with meat, bean sprouts, rice noodles, and spices. He ordered the chicken, and tossed the rest of the BBQ pork on top for extra flavor.
This is what came on the side of the Pho. He tossed this stuff in the broth and seemed extremely happy with the meal.
I really should have written down the name of my dish. I have no idea what it's called, but it's from the Vietnamese portion of the menu. It's rice noodles with beef and a fried spring roll topped with nuts.
Mine was served with this fish sauce. The fried spring roll was awesome dipped in this. The entire dish was very good, and under the surface I found a salad! It had bean sprouts, cucumbers, and lettuce. Odd.
My dad's friend had the roast duck Pho. Roast duck is actually the other thing Dac Hoa is known for. This is clearly a family owned restaurant, and I have no complaints. If you dig Vietnamese food, check out Dac Hoa: 4 stars.

If you google "best breakfast in Buffalo, NY," you are likely to find Sophia's as a top result. We did, so Fancy and I headed over there to see what all the buzz is about. We were not disappointed.
Fancy got the create your own skillet with bacon, feta, eggs, mushrooms, peppers, home fries, and onions. Again, she went with the HALF portion. Awesome.
These skillets were AMAZING. The food was extremely flavorful, and it was clear that the ingredients were fresh. Every forkful had a new flavor combination, and everything was cooked perfectly: the bacon and potatoes were crisp, but the veggies weren't over cooked. The portions size was incredible, especially for the price - around six bucks. Neither of us could finish, and okapis have huge appetites.
We love breakfast dessert, so when we go out we usually grab a short stack of french toast. This was unsurprisingly delicious. It was crispy on the crust with a soft, sweet center. I especially liked how they didn't put the butter right on top. The place was slammed, but the staff was extremely helpful, fast, and courteous Five stars - if you find yourself in, around, or heading through Buffalo, stop at Sophia's. You won't regret it.

Vizzy's is famous for their beef on weck. That's saying something in a city that's famous for beef on weck. That puppy up there is as big as it looks. It literally had enough beef for two sandwiches.
Just as important as the beef is the roll. This roll was delicious with lots of caraway seeds and salt. Also, it was tough enough to stand up to all that beef without getting too soggy. This sandwich is $9.95 with loads of chips and a pickle spear.
They're also known for their MONSTER burger. It's a half-pounder, and it comes with fries for $7.95. The price is awesome, and it is good. Oh, and those fries are delightful. They're the ever so popular skin-on variety that are wonderful with vinegar.
The servings are awesome and so are the prices. The atmosphere is typical dive bar, which is one of the best. You can tell how good a place is by how busy it is, and damn, they were busy. If you're ever in Buffalo looking for great beef, go to Vizzy's. 5 stars.
