A note about serious food allergies

Vietnamese cuisine has many great delights, including the noble Banh Mi and phantastic pho. (Yes, we stand by what we just did there.) The pho flavor is in full phorce here, mixing in with ground turkey, garlic, ponzu, slaw, and edamame. That mixture fills the crunchy lettuce cups with something so good, you'll do back phlips. Too far. We know.
