What's Cooking?

Hi Kirk, I've only been here once for a roast duck noodle soup but the duck was as you described except with maybe less meat. I had breakfast at Cafe Dore this morning. On the way back I saw the location of Que Huong for the first time. Have you ever done a QH post? Cheers


too bad about that fish dish, it sounded really bad!

Hi Kirk - sorry to hear about the mishap with the fish. I hope Mrs Kirk is alright. I had that happened to be before so now I have a phobia about eating fish.


Hi Dennis - Have I been to Que Huong?


Hi Kat - It was hard to swallow - literally....

Hi DL - How are you, I hope all is well. Sorry to dredge up bad memories.


All the dishes look good but too bad they fell a bit short on flavor. Augh! Fish bone in the throat! I've had a sole fish bone stuck in my throat before too. Hope it didn't cause too much pain for the Missus.


Come on even fish sauce sucks. That really bites its the sauce that make or break it.



Hi Carol - It was ugly while it lasted, but in the end the bone was vanquished.

Hi Billy - I agree completely.

omg that plate of goodies that i cant pronounce with the picked raw meat thing looks really really really really good. *drooooool*


Aww, I'm sad. The stir fried seafood noodle dish has always been my favorite in high school and college. I haven't been back since then, maybe they changed the cook?
Sorry to hear about the Missus choking on the fish bone. I always choked on fish bones in Viet Nam but that's because my mom always buy the lower end fish that had a lot of bones in them. Bananas and rice balls always do the job of getting that bone out of your throat. Yuck. Hasta la manana.


Hi Judy - Look for Banh Cuon Tay Ho sign!

Hi Tammy - LOL! See you tomorrow.

Eat. Travel. Eat!

What an interesting place! I've never been to a restaurant that serves both chinese and vietnamese food. Sad to hear that even the fish sauce was bland- that is just weird!

It seems like most places have trouble making steamed fish these days. Either the fish is overcooked or there is just something weird about the dish.

I do not know if it is just me but I seem to always have trouble commenting here :(.

Oh my goodness! That's definitely a 1 star restaurant. Let me know when you're up in the Bay Area and Sam and I will take you guys out to Great China... AMAZING peking duck there!


Hi Vicky - I looks forward to that!
