Pho (Silver Lake)

By in 05: Silver Lake + Echo Park

DSC08958.jpgThis signless restaurant in a mini-mall is one of the two vietnamese places in the hipster/Mexican neighborhood. While it’s very authentic and down to earth, the menu is very minimal. The cripsy egg vegetable crepe came ‘unwrapped’ and we made an ugly mess. ^^;; The beef are very tender, though the broth is a bit light and not onion-sweet enough for my taste. Good cheap eat though.

    I think the Vietnamese crepes here are made without egg (I’ve seen recipes both ways, but when I’ve asked, at least, they claim there are no eggs).

    I believe the yellow comes from tumeric.

    I see, that’s interesting because it tasted like egg!

    The crepe skin stick together so we were having hard time taking them piece by piece and wrap the egg/vegetables. we end up eating them seperately ^^;;

    oh was it one of those vietnamese-spring rolls?
    yeah, those are so hard and tiring to wrap!

    but my vietnamese friend does it so perfectly–guess it just takes practice! ^^;;
