Phuong's in Little Saigon, Mother-in-Law Kimchi from Little Seoul Get the Good Food Treatment

Categories: Viet Vittles

Yesterday, our new art director asked me about the hu tieu place I had just plugged on Good Food with Evan Kleiman on KCRW-FM 89.9. "Hu tieu? I don't like hu tieu," I replied.

"No, you specifically mentioned them!" he said.

I thought about it for a bit. "Phuong's?" I shot back. I had reviewed the restaurant for this infernal rag back in November and had recorded a commentary shortly after. "They make good bánh hoi, and an awesome soup--but it ain't hu tieu."

Turned it it DID make hu tieu, and the soup I don't like from the Vietnamese galaxy is mi. OOPS...anyhoo, my valentine to Phuong's appeared this week.


Also on the program? Lauryn Chun of Mother-in-Law's Kimchi, which she of course bases on her mom's legendary kimchi at Jang Mo Gip in Garden Grove. Always awesome to have OC represent with Evan--enjoy!
