Me: " What do you think of Mai’s Kitchen on Bolsa and Magnolia?"
Vietnamese Co-worker: “Good. Nothing too special, just homestyle food.”
Well I didn’t grow up in a Vietnamese household! So really this was a treat for me.
I’m not an expert on Vietnamese food but I like to think I am better than average, there is a world beyond Pho that is undiscovered!
Holy god @JeetKuneBao! That looks like legit home-style cooking. My Mom hasn’t made the catfish in years since my Dad was diagnosed as pre-diabetic…I miss the unctuousness of the braising liquid over rice and the slippery, chewiness of the skin…it’s the one time where I don’t require my fish skin to be crispy. I need to roll over sometime. Thanks for bringing back fond memories for me.
