O'Mai Cafe on Clement: Kobe beef banh mi, Vietnamese iced coffe in Mason jars -- and anatomically correct Bun bo Hue [San Francisco]

soupçon | Aug 30, 2014 09:00 AM

I've been avoiding this place as a bit too hipsterish and possibly dumbed down until reading Rachel Khong's review of the place pointing out they served a legitimate Bun bo Hue, blood cubes and all. I checked it out at lunchtime yesterday and it indeed came fully equipped, though I found the broth a little lacking in intensity (as did Rachel). (She also recommended the carpaccio, which isn't served at lunch.)

Interestingly, Rachel's review and online dinner menus mention Rocky Mountain oysters as an ingredient, whereas the lunch menu simply mentions "pizzle." There was definitely pizzle in mine, though there may have been a bit of both.
