And I mean early.
A little after 6 on a cold Sunday morning, after procuring 2 Wii vouchers at Circuit City Emeryville, we had time to eat before the store actually opened at 8 am.
We headed to Oakland, looking for perhaps a hot bowl of pho.
In the semi-darkness, the only restaurant open for business seemed to be Pho Ga Huong Que Cafe, or Huong Que Chicken Noodle House, which did not look all that inviting at that hour.
After cruising for other possibilities (it seemed pretty hopeless) we came back to this place.
This restaurant turned out to be much bigger than it looked. (see attached photos).
Now, I would have been satisfied with just okay. But it was excellent.
The green ginger sauce was amazing. They do sell the sauce to go, $3.00 for an 8 oz. cup.
The chicken broth was rich, and my Ho Fun noodle soup even came with tiny unlaid egg yolk balls.
I will try this place at other times, too. Chicken soup? This is it.
