Pho at Santa Cruz Diner

Midori in Santa Cruz | Jan 16, 200608:07 PM     18

I was wondering if anyone's tried the pho at the Santa Cruz Diner lately. I saw a post saying that it wasn't very good, but I'm wondering if it's gotten better since that post. I saw an ad on TV the other night, and it made me hungry (and intrigued).

I'm sad by the lack of good noodles in Santa Cruz. There are more Japanese restaurants than you can shake a stick at, but only Benten serves ramen. Unfortunately, it's only one type of ramen, not a decent portion, overpriced and doesn't have good flavor. (The best ramen I've ever had was in a mall in Waikiki.)

I haven't tried Xin yet, but I assume it'll also be a Californianized version of Asian food since it's related to O'Mei.

I usually get Wor Won Ton Noodle Soup at our neighborhood Chinese restaurant when I have a noodle fix and I'm not over the hill or in Sacramento, but it's not the same as a huge bowl of carbs.

Does anyone have any recommendations, or am I destined to just continue stopping in Milpitas on my way back to SC?

TIA,
Midori
