Lunch at Moto Pho Co


I decided to step outside my microwave/junk food comfort zone yesterday and check out Moto Pho, a new (August 2012) place that opened in a former auto repair shop/garage down on Main Street.

Long story (and lunch, it was SO good) short: Fine pho (below, the menu in its entirety),


edamame sprinkled with sea salt, sesame oil, and crispy red onion that was so good I'm ordering two bowls next time (which won't be long in coming), great atmosphere (sunny, open room with lots of glass and light), nice staff, comfortable chairs and tables, and best of all: free WiFi.

And not just any WiFi: take a look (below)


at the speed test I ran on my iPad while having lunch.

For comparison, my "ultra-high speed" Comcast internet at home has about the same download speed but max upload is around 4.

24 up?

What is this, the GooglePlex?


Oh, yeah, almost forgot: the Sweet Rice Pudding with black-eyed peas and coconut milk was exquisite.

Yeah, I'll be back.

Love the "space, period, space" between the items.

When I was younger, I convinced friends that in America we don't talk about what kind of meat we put in our phở, but we we describe it as much how many kinds are in there.

Phở un for one meat. Phở du for two. Phở Tri so on. And then told them we needed to figure out four meats...which they responded to Phở Quad?

In Los Angeles, and according to Vietnamese locals, "pho" is pronounced "fuh".

So instead of "moto-foe-coe", this place would be "moto-fuh-coe" -- which sounds like a popular epithet.

Goi cuon and pho. Hmmm.

Fiber Internet.

Those of us involved with the Vietnamese resettlement program are a good 30 years ahead of you.

See if they serve Bahn me.
