Try Pho Ga Huong Que Café (a.k.a. Huong Que Chicken Noodle House)—it’s truly excellent, says grocerytrekker. And it’s a Vietnamese-Chinese place, so a lot of the specialties are unusual. Take, for example, unlaid egg ho fun soup. It’s in the pho/mi section of the menu, listed under the chicken intestine options.
They have amazing green ginger sauce. And try the “whole fresh chicken,” it’s a surprisingly good approximation of the Hainanese chicken. “Not as plump, a little bony and no accompanying rice, cucumbers or soup the way Singaporeans eat it, but having just been disappointed by the Hainanese chicken rice at Kopitiam in Lafayette, this was a small revelation. … With the green garlic and ginger sauce, the chicken is as good as boiled chicken gets,” says grocerytrekker.
