mmm-yoso!!! Food blog. Today's writer of meals is Cathy. Kirk and Ed(from Yuma) are consuming meals so as to have something to write about.
What a strange Holiday Season we've had. Every day has seemed like a weekend starting from about Friday December 20 until this past Monday January 6, because of the Wednesday legal holidays and corresponding Tuesday celebratory Eves. Between attempts to run errands quickly and unobtrusively while avoiding crowds, we are both tired of cooking at home. A favorite place which I've posted about previously is Pho Pasteur Anh Hong. (It's located in the same parking lot as K Sandwiches). Sort of off the beaten path (and not in a mall with any grocery stores), service is always efficient and the food is always tasty. The extensive (197 item) menu is always a challenge.
The decor hasn't changed in all these years, although the cash register location has moved since my 2009 post. I enjoy the pink tablecloths on all the tables, making it feel a bit more upscale.
The shrimp and pork roll appetizer ($3.49) is always a favorite. The peanut dipping sauce is complimentary and delicious.
Stir fried chicken and vegetables on wide rice noodle ($7.99) is a favorite. The noodles are slightly fried and a bit crispy in places, which is refreshing.
I always have to search the extensive menu for the above favorite of mine: bean thread (not noodles) chicken soup ($6.99). The broth is wonderful and the bean threads are just as satisfying as noodle, without being carbohydrate laden.
After reading Kirk's early December post of Bun Mang Vit, The Mister was wanting duck and ordered Mi Vit Tim ($7.99) egg noodle duck leg soup, dry (which didn't happen, as you can see in the top photo) but He managed after pulling out the wonderfully flavored duck leg.
I was mostly wanting egg noodles and ordered Mi Xao Chay ($7.99) Egg noodle topped with fried tofu and stir fried vegetables. This was a very nice plate with combination of a tasty nicely fried tofu mixed with very fresh tasting vegetables all on top of some perfect egg noodles.
We've always liked the food and atmosphere here. There always is some sort of table celebration going on, with families surrounding whole fish centerpieces and enjoying their traditions.
