mmm-yoso!!!, the food blog you are reading, is an open diary of food consumption. Sometimes there is a story behind the reasons why one of us (Kirk, Ed(from Yuma), Cathy) is consuming said food. Sometimes it's just sharing a meal with you. Today is a sharing.
Wow, we've had strange weather the past week...foggy and overcast until mid-morning, and windy with some sun into the afternoon...chilly weather for us who live in San Diego and now this morning we have rain. The Mister and I try to be sure we have a meal before we go grocery shopping and last week, we planned on shopping on Mira Mesa Boulevard and Pho Lucky was an easy choice, because we wanted something warm and good.
I've counted more than five posts on this blog mentioning Pho Lucky in one way or another. It's a go- to place for both Kirk, Ed (from Yuma), when he is visiting (from Yuma) and The Mister and myself (as well as one meal with the three of us mmm-yoso-ers, which is left to our memories and was never posted).
This meal was typically good. Here is The Mister's rare steak and medium rare flank steak, small ($6.50). The stock here is so very flavorful and not greasy. The meats are plentiful and the noodles are always just right (not clumpy). The plate of toppings is always fresh and includes sawtooth (it's there, under the basil).
Kari-Ga ($6.50) chicken curry. On par with the Bo Kho (beef stew), Kirk's favorite. The flavors of the sauce, good amount of chicken as well as potatoes and carrot and the accompanying warm, crispy bahn mi (bread) is just a perfect ratio and comforting, especially on cool days.
I hope your week has started off well. Stay warm!
