Macklemore’s ‘best comfort food’

2012435302
He’s only got twenty dollars in his pocket. And Macklemore isn’t going to spend it all on dinner.

Good thing that pho, at around $4.75 a bowl, is the singer’s “ultimate go-to” meal. The Seattle star told Bon Appetit magazine that “pho feels healthy, it’s filling and it helps white people learn how to use chopsticks.”

He added that “for someone whose job description entails giving high-fives to sweaty drunk people around the world, and sleeping on couches in venues that haven’t been cleaned since the ’80s, it’s almost guaranteed I will spend four months of the year with a cold. That hoisin sauce, broth, lime, basil, noodles, beef combination–it’s the best comfort food.”

Bon Appetit also talked with his contemporary, Sabzi of Blue Scholars, who “thought that pho was important enough to deserve its own song, video, poster series, and art Kickstarter,” the last one done with the help of Sabzi’s favorite spot, Pho Bac.

Macklemore gives a slurp-out to Than Brothers and their pre-meal cream puffs. “Dessert before the meal is such a revolutionary idea, and whoever thought of it is a genius.”
