Hu Tieu with Pork Broth?

I am a sucker for Hu Tieu - sweet pork broth, rice noodles, thin slices of pork, onion - it's awesome... but since Indochine in Pasadena removed it from their menu, I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

Does anyone know where I can find some? It's my favorite soup, and I'm totally willing to drive for it. I live very close to the Burbank/Glendale border. Thanks!

  1. RaeRenee, the closest thing to you is the Chinatown area.

    There are 3 places that I know of that are solely Chiu Chow restaurants that serve the hu tieu with pork broth. Kim Chuy, Chiu Heng and my favorite, Mien Nghia. Mien Nghia doesn't have that traditional sweet pork broth, but rather a very tasty chicken broth.

    And most of the vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown have some Chiu Chow influence as well. Besides pho, you might be able to find hu tieu. I've never tried them though. And there's also New Battambang also in Chinatown. It's cambodian, but again, there is chinese/vietnamese/chiu chow influence in their soup noodles.

    If you're willing to trek to the SGV, there are more Chiu Chow places... like Kim Tar, Kim Ky and i think it's called Noodle House. do a search for them on yelp.

    hope this helps.

      i'm with you on mien nghia. i'll have to try the other two.

    2. You probably have to devote a whole day for this but go to Little Saigon and get the best Hu Tieu you'll ever have. It's about an hour drive for you but I think it's worth it.

        for sure Saigon will have awesome hu tieu. if you're down there and specifically want chiu chow style hu tieu. go to:

        Trieu Chau Restaurant

        don't confuse this with New Trieu Chau in Westminster. das ubergeek learned about them the hard way.
