Pho Kien Giang and Sai Jai Thai in the Tenderloin

jade | Sep 28, 2005 03:29 PM

I walked out after a few slurps of a dreadful rendition of pho at Pho Kien Giang on Larkin. I wanted to try someplace different, looking for my ever elusive perfect bowl of pho. I should have left when I walked it and there were no other customers at 11:00am, early for lunch but other pho places I've been to in the 'Loin at that hour have had customers.

I walked down a block and saw Sai Jai Thai (Geary and Larkin), looked clean and cute. I had the best tom yum soup I've had in a long time. It was rich and complex, home style. When I was leaving, I noticed they were written up in the Chronicle's Bargain Bites article in Sept. I am looking forward to going back and trying more.
