Vietnamese "Mi Kho" Noodle Dish in NYC?

BBBbear | Oct 28, 2003 04:08 PM

Does anyone know of any Vietnamese restaurants in Manhattan or its boroughs that serve an egg noodle dish called "mi kho"?

Unlike egg noodle soups, mi kho is served with a bowl of soup and a bowl of meat sauce separate from the noodles, which, instead of submerged in broth, are tossed with oil and seasonings and then topped with accompaniments such as roast pork, shrimp chips, fried shallots, and chives. (I was told that "kho" means "dry" and "mi kho" literally means dry noodles--hence, no liquid or broth.)

None of the Vietnamese restaurants I checked out in Chinatown and elsewhere has that dish, although it is quite common in restaurants in other cities with large Vietnamese populations.
