Luu New Tung Kee Noodle

Beef Satay Rice Stick

Whoa - I didn't realize that these guys opened so early in the day. But noodles for breakfast worked out nicely for us. After an early morning arrival into SFO today, we headed straight on down into the valley to stop at their Mountain View outlet (520 Showers Drive, 650-947-8888) for my all-time-favorite "large #2." The noodles were a bit mushier than I was hoping for, but it didn't matter. I just loved how refreshing the fresh basil, cucumber, and squeeze of lemon were.

Is it a kind of curried noodle dish? Looks spicy.

Uh - sort of. Digging a couple of posts down will uncover my description that "#2" is peanuty, but "more like a savory sa cha sauce from Taiwan rather than [a sweet] satay sauce from Singapore" - all while featuring Vietnamese garnishes like basil. I can't find anything like this anywhere else in the world, which is why I love coming here so much.

That does look spicy, but really good. The fresh basil, cucumber, and squeeze of lemon were sound perfect. Must remember to add those 3 extras to my next spicy dish.
