Constantly Craving…

Published in: Daily Photo

#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.

    Is it bad that’s I’ve already made a list of places to try for Pho when I get back to the US?

    I know what you mean about the lack of “real” asian food north of the bridge. If you ever craving good chinese, and are willing to drive a little north, Lily Kai in Petaluma is very good. It is close to the 116.

      Thanks for the rec, Cindy. I’ve been meaning to investigate the food scene in Petaluma for a while. I’ve heard some really good things about the food up there.

    That’s hilarious because I texted my husband yesterday about finding some Pho ASAP as I was looking at the 6 feet of snow outside my window.
