Tom yum at Green Papaya in Alhambra

Left work early w/flu, intended to get caldo de pollo at Taco Room but cruised right past in a congested haze. Plan B was Kim Tar, but remembered friend saying good things about tom yum at Green Papaya.

It's on Valley west of Atlantic, used to be a McD's. Tom yum noodles come with very savory pork meatballs, slices of fish cake. Broth has excellent balance between lime/lemongrass tang and chili heat. Stock seemed to have more body than most also. Will definitely be back to try boat noodles.
