I miss Mien Trung. I try to make it back everytime I'm in san diego.. nothing in LA compares.


Dude you're alive! Happy New Year's been a while.


Liked this roundup. I was just near Sushi Yaro today (went to Pangea). Will have to try that Okinawan soup!

We just polished off my Chicken Arroz Caldo...

Totally agree with you Kirk in regards to Mien Trung! I totally get into a war of words with my roommate over Mien Trung vs Hoai Hue and other people as a matter of fact. Mien Trung by far the best Bun Bo Hue in town.

soups, noodles, name it we've been partaking in it :) keep warm!!


Sounds nice and warming CC.

Hi Anthony - I hope you had a great New Year! I agree....I once did a comparison post and Mien Trung came out ahead.

Hi Kat - It's not quite as cold here....and i'm kind of happy about that!


Yes, soup, stew, chili, cioppino, hot pot and anything hot served in a bowl do count and have been necessary the past few weeks. ALl of these look really good. Frost that needed to be scraped was on the car windows yesterday morning, but only on the roof today.


Hi Cathy - Sheesh.....frost. No thanks! ;o)


I've had a hankering for Bun Bo Hue for quite a while now. Thanks for getting me out of my office today. It was really good! Unfortunately, it had none of that stuff I see floating in yours (pork loaf?)

I think this was better than versions I've had in the past. It may have had something to do with the smaller size I had this time. I usually go large but can't finish it and doesn't get that nice development of flavors you get towards the end (I think you've spoken about it with regards to CABs in the past).


Hi Jan - Sorry that I didn't mention I got the Bun Bo Hue Dac Biet....the special, which I think is 50 cents more?
