I've had the "Hai Nam" chicken at Luong Hai Ky a few times now and it isn't bad. The first time I had it, I thought the rice was overly salty. But the last couple of times, everything was decent. And you are right about "ponderous". I ended up just using my hands.


I like how they give you so much chicken skin. I've never had this rice dish but your description of how the rice is *supposed* to taste makes me want to try making it at home for dinner one night. I'm obsessed with the ginger fish sauce - I was told it's just fish sauce, grated ginger, a bit of sugar?


Hi Jan - I've had it at LHK when they were on Convoy.....didn't like it much. There's just no way you can be dainty with this stuff.

Hi Faye - You should try the bun mang vit from Tu Thanh, they do it right. Nuoc Mam Gung is basically ginger, fish sauce, sugar, and lime. I like some chilies and garlic in mine.

Ed (from Yuma)

I don't have pho ga much, but I think I really liked the version at Pho Ca Dao - or at least I did years ago.


The pho ga at Bolsa in Mira Mesa was pretty good, but I haven't been there in years. We've been making pho ga at home.




Hi Ed - I've had it at the ECB location and it was way to heavy on the msg and not enough chicken flavor for me.

Hi Sandy - Last time I was there was in 2008 and really thought the Pho Ga was bland.....

Yep, another one Kat.


First time I've heard of this joint.
The only place I've had phone ga in OC is from a place call phone Saigon between Hwy 22 and Westminster in the garden Grove area. Ginger sauce usually comes with phone ga.


Stupid autocorrect.
They serve their chicken on the side and there is usually eggs in the soup the aka embryo. Yummy


LOL Billy - That's funny....autocorrect drives me nuts too!


Got the wrong name. It is Pho Bolsa I think the place has gone defunct base off Yelpers.


Hi Billy - Closed in October of last year I think.
