Pho Night @ Dear Mom
Sunday, November 17th
2700 16th Street (at Harrison)
Pho weather is upon us. It’s crispy outside, which is why we’ll be bringing three types of noodle soups to enjoy for Sunday Night Dinner on November 17th.
First up, we have our Hanoi-Style Beef Pho. It’s made with a six-hour broth with sliced hanger steak and thick noodles that we pick up fresh everyday from our purveyors in the Mission. Make it Dac Biet (or Special) with extra add-ons of beef brisket, beef balls and tripe.
The Banh Canh Cha Ca has all its components in the name. Check it:
Banh = noodles (and in this case, thick housemade tapioca noodles, similar to udon)
Canh = soup (a fish, pork and tomato broth)
Cha Ca = fishcake, more specially, a dill cod fishcake, the lead singer in a seafood and pork ensemble including fish balls, pork shank and shrimp
Lastly, our Buddha’s Mien is a tribute to the vegan noodles we once had in the Mekong Delta: glass noodles with fried tofu, kabocha squash and braised daikon in a star anise and mushroom stock.
We’ve got small bites to share: dry fried chicken wings, potstickers, and mushroom pho rolls and warm red bean mochi pancakes.
See you soon!
