Noodle is my fave food for weekend. So this weekend I'm checking out a new place. Found this restaurant on Yelp and surprisingly we actually missed it the first time we were in the area. Well, looking at the name later on we realize that this place is a restaurant and not just a pho/noodle house joint.
Anyhow, since we were there for noodle. I ordered #29 Mi Trieu Chao which is the egg yellow noodle with soup on the side. Hubby got #27 mi Cao Nguyen also in egg yellow noodle with soup on the side. We love our yellow noodle dry. Rice noodle (hu tieu) on the other side (in my opinion) is best served with soup. We also ordered egg roll.
Truong Thanh Milpitas. The prawn cracker served with the noodle didn't budge him a little bit. He took a bite and declared against it. I took a bite and thought they totally needed to work on it. It's plain bland !
I don't think we will be going back unless we were in the area. For dry noodle we still think Truong Thanh was way better. And if we don't feel like going to Milpitas, most likely we will just go to China Chen downtown.
