This last weekend, I tried a Vietnamese place that a friend of mine recommended to me a few years back. I just had to recommend this place to people who are ever in the San Jose area.
The name of the place is called Dalat Restaurant and they are known for their Hu Tieu dry noodles. Since summer is vastly approaching, I'd figure I share a great place to get good dry noodles since cold/dry noodles are a perfect choice for hot weather :)
I must admit though, that the noodles were a bit soft and harder to chew since they were of the wider type. The broth that came with the noodles was a good compliment to it.
An alternative, if you're ever in the San Francisco Area is Pho Ha Nam Ninh which is in the Tenderloin area. Now their dry noodles are amazing--ask for #25 DRY and Large!!
Trust me, once you try this dish out and whether you live in SF or coming from San Jose, it's well worth it :)
Oh and please let me know what Dry Noodle places any of you have tried before. There's a possibility that I might not have tried a place somewhere in the bay area.
