I look forward to those "San Diego chilly" days; you know, what we here consider cold, the low 50's, a nice chill in the air.....and weekends are even better. The Missus sleeping in, I set out, "honey-do" list in hand, and this time decide to make a short detour....to Pho Lucky, for the Banh Mi Bo Kho.
And while I have been disappointed on occasion with the beef stew here, it will hit the spot more often than not. As it did on this day....perhaps not quite as thick as I prefer, but full of tangy, beefy, slightly anise flavors. The tendon with just the right amount of toothsome versus buttery. The bread is standard issue, but is warmed and who cares after you dip....nay, drench it in the "gravy". The onions add a bit of acidic pungency teaming with the cilantro to cut the richness and revive your palate a bit.
