Not to take away from Trieu Chau and Phnom Penh Noodle/“The Shack”. Those 2 places are classic and are a must-eat, with one being Vietnamese and the other Cambodian, respectively.
Both here in Little Saigon, there are 2 Hu Tieu joints literally a minute walk from each other.
Condiments are a must! Pickled garlic and chiles
And the star, Dry Hu Tieu Nam Vang with soup and some real good tomato sauce, better than Scott Conants tomato sauce! Phuongs is known for the clear noodles. Get the clear noodles. Get the beans sprouts steamed, too.
Next up is Co Ba
A little more modern interior.
Greeted with a menu and condiments
And this time I got half egg noodle half rice noodle(tossed in some tasty brown sauce?)
This one has fried pork fat pieces and the soup has a pork bone and pork belly.
The verdict. TIE.
Both delicious for different reasons both slightly different of the same dish. Both places should be visited!!
