Pho 54 and New Hwong Kok Inc, Milpitas report

Arlene | Jun 24, 2004 12:39 AM

went to Pho 54 for lunch today with a friend. We both liked it. Small bowl of pho is $4.75 and good if you're not very hungry. I got #10-rare beef w/ beef brisket. Tasty soup, good tastying beef, and the sprouts, herbs, peppers, lime plate on the side.
Didn't try friend's dish but she got a pho and liked it. Recommended.

Pho 54

Then walked to V.K. Food #3 for soy bean pudding (dofu fa) $2.00 for large which feeds 3 adults. Small is $1.25. Still yummy and fresh. It's behind the counter so need to ask for it. Many tofu dishes on the steamed food side-still haven't tried, and don't forget their fresh soy bean milk.

They have good dim sum, take-out counter, and places to sit to eat.
Favorites: turnip cakes (3 for $1.30), tofu-stuffed pork on the steam table (1 order comes w/ 2 pieces-$1.30). Wanted the coconut-peanut mochi but they were sold out!
lots of steamed dumplings, buns, have egg custard tarts $.50 each, porridge & noodles, even have frozen buns. They have a dim sum lunch $4.25 w/ preserved egg & pork porridge (or other porridge) and dumplings. Or you can get combination meal (served w/ rice or noodle & soup) 2 items $3.50, or 3 items $4.50

Friend goes there a lot when she doesn't want to cook.

Anyone tried any of these places?
