If you don’t know too much about the Vietnamese culture, let me tell you a little bit about us. Here in California, we’re everywhere! We dominate San Jose, Sacramento and Orange County. The men love smoking cigarettes and drinking strong iced coffee sweetened with condensed milk brought to them by Vietnamese girls in skimpy bikini’s and lingerie. The women love to wear premium denim, high heels and Louis Vuitton bags. But all of us VN people share one thing in common, PHO! It’s a dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I’ve had pho in many different places all around Cali, but the one bowl of pho noodle soup that almost makes my heart skip a beat just thinking about it, is the bowl of noodles from Pho Anh Dao. I’ve been told from the owner that there is no MSG in their broth, it’s always fresh and piping hot. There are two different kinds of broth – chicken or beef. Pho Anh Dao is famous for their chicken pho but they sure know how to make the beef one too. In the photo above is my usual, beef pho with brisket and meatballs. I don’t care that it’s summer and 100 degrees outside, I can eat this anytime! If you ever have the chance to try this place, make sure you don’t get there too late… when they run out of their fresh ingredients, they close up for the day!
