Pho Ga Dac Biet in SF?
Coming down with a cold and am having a serious hankering for a bowl of pho ga-- and not the wimpy, shredded-white-meat variety. I'd like something spicy with a rich broth, pieces of chopped hen bone-in (I prefer dark meat), with all of the fixings (basil, sprouts, liver, blood...)
Something comparable to Pho Kim Long in San Jose, without the 45-minute drive. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Here's a photo of the chicken pho with unborn eggs and giblets at Hung Ky in the Tenderloin. The chicken is off the bone, but you do get a mix of dark and white, plus the wonderful skin.
Edited to add: And, I found my earlier post on this with a different photo.
So sorry you're feeling under the weather. Vietnam II has Pho Ga Dac Biet and it's just as you describe. I am a chicken (no pun intended) and like the very simple Pho Ga at Bodega Bistro. . .it's white meat with great broth but a friend had the Pho Ga Dac Biet at Vietnam II and pronounced it delicious. . .hopefully you can get your fix and you'll feel better. I hope so.
