My Tan W Broadway Vancouver
There was a little dive on W Broadway in the late 70's, I believe called My Tan, unlicensed - hot tea in glasses, but an amazing platefull of food for cheap. We used to order the combination plate. They moved down the street on the other side in the 80's, got bigger & licensed, but the food went downhill. I am trying to remember what ethnicity it was so I can try to find something similar. I thought it might have been Korean, but haven't found anything like it since. Anyone??
it was Vietnamese and I am so happy that you remember it, too.
the meat sauce on the rice. 'member that?
so good. steamy windows on cold nights. that place was fantastic.
Phnom Penh in Chinatown is Viet/Cambodian and has stayed the course since the '80s. While I wouldn't call them cheap, they're not as "predictable" as your typical pho joints (menu has a few pho, but not pages of them).
Parkles: meat sauce on rice, is that beef au concasse ?
