Context

“So in 2010 there was this place in Buford called Noodle Mi ran by this Vietnamese family; Patrick, his partner and his old mom cooking. Best fucking Phó place we’ve ever been to. Broke my heart when they had to close down, but years later I bump into his boyfriend at the DMV and we found Patrick again working at a place in John’s Creek. This was a salad he brought out to us as a ‘thank-you’, for finding him.”
