please help identifying a type of Asian noodle soup

At the Noodles and Zen Sum soup stand at the bally's casino in Atlantic City i had a soup from their menu of about 10 choices. the one i chose had beef and "tendon" and it is so delicious. the other soups i tried there had a different taste, but this one tasted "greasier" for a lack of better word and was much darker and it wasn't clear. My question is what kind of soup is this and how can i order it at other noodle restaurants??? btw i teamed it up with udon noodles and every other place's udon noodles i have tried aren't nearly as good as this place's. i wonder whats different about them.

Almost sounds like Pho which is vietnamese. Pho usually has rice noodles with thin slices of beef with tendon or tripe in a oily, beef broth.

Yeah, sounds like Pho. You can usually get it with any number/combinations of
beef/tendon/flank/tripe (thin slices put in the broth raw that cook as they sit)... you
name it. Tasty stuff. You can also buy bouillon cubes of it (in many flavors) at Asian
grocery stores that'll give you the same stock if you want to do it yourself.

I've had something like that at a Vietnamese restaurant before, with tripe. The soup and noodles were good, but I wasn't a big fan of the tripe (texture was a bit too weird for me). Next time, I'll go with the beef.

And to be PC, it's Asian noodle soup. Not Oriental noodle soup.

I think that things are still allowed to be "oriental", just not people.

I recently discovered that "pho" is pronounced "fuh". Bear that in mind when ordering this God among dishes.

That is why God put numbers on "Oriental" menus.

It must be "secret ingredient" soup.

Yeah, have you gone to a Pho place and ordered it specifically? The only other thing I can think of that might fit the description is a taiwanese beef noodle soup.

Re: please help identifying a type of oriental noodle soup

I prefer the "bun" dishes:



Vietnamese might be my favorite ethnic cuisine, especially in the summer..

Re: please help identifying a type of oriental noodle soup

We have a place over here on the Westside called "Pho Sho!." Never been. My favorite Pho joint is in Alhambra it's called Pho 79.

My favorite Thai restaurants that have epic Pad Swee Ew are Noodle World in Alhambra and Pasadena. My favorite Pad Tai Thai restaurant is next to the IHOP in Westchester/WestL.A/Inglewood area. The place is called Thai Dishes.

I wouldn't think Pho simply because the broth was dark, not clear. Pho broth is incredibly clear, part of the difficulty in making it. I have no idea what soup it actually is, though.
