After straying to the west, I wanted to give some love to Franklin establishments at the end of the week. First up is Bristen's, where I've become enamored with the spicy beef noodle soup. It's filling, it's tasty, and it's ready in about five minutes for five dollars. I'm a pretty simple guy, and this meets all my criteria. Word has it the dumplings are good as well, though I haven't tried those yet. Any other reviews of the new menu?
