food Daikon radish broth is back at May Hong! Alibi food writer takes credit
By popular demand, according to the waiter, May Hong has re-introduced its fabulous daikon-based veggie broth.
Had a tofu and veggie pho there last night, and after my first slurp, I knew. I asked the waiter and he confirmed that lots of people had complained about it being removed from the menu. As the complainer with the biggest
soapbox, I take a little credit for this development. The waiter then went on to explain how the broth's temporary removal was the result of "Barack" destroying the economy. But hey, we don't go there for the political analysis, and we're happy to have our radish broth back.
