Le Petite Camille in Millbrae, California

Phở Tai

I had nearly an hour before the next Caltrain arrived this afternoon, so I ventured out on foot to see if there were anything interesting nearby. Normally I would've hit up Peter's Cafe, but I wasn't in the mood for a burger again, so I headed north on El Camino and found this Vietnamese place (70 El Camino Real, 650-692-4978).

Given that we were up in Millbrae rather than east San Jose, I lowered my expectations. And in that sense, that phở above was fine, with tender meat, firm skinny noodles, and a fresh array of garnishes. Interesting that the broth was cloudy though. Ultimately it just didn't have the oomph that places like Phở Ý provide.
