    Saturday or Sunday morning after too much cocaine and chilling at the boardwalk. Which are you choosing?

    Both are wondrous hangover cures. I choose pho as menudo isnt so healthy to eat tons of.

    Our son calls pho “medicine soup” because he always wants/gets it when he is sick. It’s replaced traditional chicken noodle soup.

    You can get sort of a spice/tea bag to make it at home. Not the same as a pot simmering for days.

    I prefer a nice brothy Pho, with all the meats. Especially the beef meatballs, tendons, tripe, etc. My problem is I tend to over eat and order a bowl too big

    I like other soups more than either but for this thread will vote for Pho.

    Pho was one of the Vietnamese foods that I got consistently better in Vietnam than the stuff I can get here.

    I looked into making my own pho and gave up. You gotta slow-cook beef bones for 24 hours and THEN you can start cooking pho. Not worth it.

    As a postscript, here's my Vietnamese best-of list:
    Pho: Pho Saigon (downtown)
    Banh Mi: Roostar (Gessner)
    Com Bo Luc Lac (a.k.a. Shaking Beef or Rock n Roll beef): Kim Tai or Huynh (downtown)
    Bun (noodles and meat): probably Thien Anh or Kim Tai (downtown)

    Damn...now I'm hungry

    neither, but this comfort food hits the spot for me:

    wonton noodle soup w any combination of veggies and meat that absorb the tasty broth well

    [​IMG]

    the veggies include broccoli, napa cabbage, red pepper, lotus roots, re-constituted dried mushroom; for meat, shrimp, tripe and BBQ pork (or left over pork chop)

    these ingredients absorb the the broth well; the veggies provide a wide range of texture

    the mushiness of the re-constituted dried mushromm,
    the softness of the cabbage,
    the firmness of the broccoli and
    the crunchiness of the lotus roots​
    sprinke some green onion and sesame oil on top; YUM​

    Pho is pretty solid stuff. Pho for me. Menudo is good but I feel like way worse health wise.

    Menudo everyday of the week. There is so much more flavor in a good menudo. I love pho by the way.

    I wish I could eat it daily. Places in my area only have it on the weekends.

    I love this guys Asian food porn videos on YouTube.

    Never understood the "beef tendon" pho option before watching him slurp them.

    But the real question we should be asking:

    Menudo



    Or Taco

    I didnt know it could get so bad for Mike D'Antoni financially, so soon. Menudo are a good group of dudes to perform at his telethon.
