Phan's South at SFJazz is now Mexican (SF) -- anyone been?

I know, it's Zagat, but I'm intrigued. I don't think I've seen fideo seco outside Mexico and it's a real childhood favourite for me, usually eaten in a friend's home. I'd love to hear what any of you SFBA Hounds think of his new menu.

  1. I tend to wait for reviews on non-downscale Mexican; they'd need to compare to Nopalito for me. But there's no fideo seco at Nopalito. You know it's not that hard to make at home? You just have to make sure to break the noodles fine enough, otherwise browning them gets tricky. And it isn't quite the same, but try fideo/fideuĂ  at a Spanish or Catalan place (B44, for example).
