Trying to fight off a virus, I picked-up an order of braised duck leg ho fun noodle soup from Hai Ky Mi Gia in the Tenderloin last week. It was packed neatly with the broth, pickled veggies, and duck with rice noodles, jalapenos and cilantro in separate containers.
The duck seemed a little saltier this time, but was otherwise consistent with my previous post. The rice noodles were very firm and I appreciated that they pulled apart easily from the packed clump once dropped into the hot broth. Rich and deep, the broth spiked with fresh chilis provided a tingling warmth. I liked alternating it with bites of the sweet-tart veggies.
