Yummy Yummy - Truth in Advertising!
In the Richmond for a post SF 1/2 Marathon chow - found our way to Yummy Yummy on Irving (we were thinking San Tung, but it didn't open until 11:00). This was my third visit here, and as usual I ordered the Bun Cari Ga - Chicken Curry Noodle Soup. Ordered with egg noodles instead of rice vermicelli which always seem overcooked, it was spot on - my standard for this dish. The broth was rich with coconut milk and fairly heavily laced with curry. Noodles were appropriately chewy, and tangled with lots of shredded chicken and a few chunks of fried potato. Accompanied by a large plate of bean sprouts, chiles, and cilantro it was truly beautiful.
We started with an order of Banh Khot - my first experience with these. I sort of expected them to be crisp on the bottom, which they were not. They were, none the less, delicious in a lettuce leaf with some mint, shredded carrot, etc.
