#truth: It’s not as easy to find real-deal Asian food up here in Marin County as it is in San Francisco or the East Bay.
For the most part, the prevailing word is bland. Not bad, necessarily, but not the stuff you dream about at night.
Every once in a while, though, I stumble on something really good.
Like this place I went to last weekend with El Hub, Yu Shang Pho in San Rafael. Ooooh, gurl! — I can’t stop thinking about that bowl of soup…
The broth, OMG! The broth… It was So. Damn. Good! I don’t have the most refined palette in the world, but with this soup (I ordered the chicken broth without the meat), even I could taste the layers.
I’ve been totally craving a bowl all week.
If you’re ever out this way and get a craving for a good bowl of pho, check out Yu Shang Pho in San Rafael. It’s triple F-caliber food: flavorful, fast and friendly service.
