I've finally found a bit of time to get back to City Heights and start making the rounds again. On this day, I wanted some Hu Tieu Nam Vang Kho. Now, I honestly believe that Ly Heng has surpassed 777 in that category, Ly Heng now opens at 9am and it was just past 8 on a nice Sunday morning. So, I headed over to 777, which I've now been visiting for over seven years, time surely does fly.
The place looks pretty much the same as when I first visited all those years ago......though on this day, there were two Servers I didn't recognize....so perhaps I haven't been around in a while.
The Hu Tieu Nam Vang Kho is still amazingly priced at $5.77.
The noodles were nice and "stretchy" and this seemed like the status quo; but there seems to be a few cracks around the edges. The pork bone in the broth now features a lot of meat, but it was rather tough and flavorless and the broth was rather weak. The pork slices were dry and tough, though everything else was on par with what I've had on previous visits. No lime slice this time as well. Overall, not terrible, but not quite what I've been used to over the years. I'm hoping this was just a bad day.
