bun rieu in san francisco and being sad about bun bo hue

monkutaro | May 19, 2010 11:28 AM

The last post about SF bun rieu options was a few years ago, so I thought I'd check and see if I'm missing out on anything...

Places I've eaten bun rieu at in order of tasty goodness (I'm leaving out the places that sucked):
ha nam ninh (they add oc to their bun rieu!)
vietnam too
jasmine garden (I was totally surprised by how decent their soups are)

Places I intend on eating bun rieu at soon:
ngoc mai
quan bac
bodega bistro

Any suggestions? Any comments on the places I'm going or have been to?

Also, if anyone has any tips on bun bo hue options, I'm all ears. So far I've only been placated by the bun bo hue at ha nam ninh. Every place else just kind of makes me kind of sad in a "who peed in my soup" kind of way.
