Mix JULY 2017 MARKETPLACECONTRACOSTA.COM 33 Shaking (Shaken) Beef with Lime Sauce served with a dipping “sauce”, which is simply a mixture of lime juice and salt and pepper. The beef chunks in this dish were extremely tender and cooked to perfection. The flavor of the meat was exceptional with or without the lime sauce. Shelly explained that all of the meats used for their dishes are marinated for at least 24 hours to intensify the flavors, so it was no wonder that the beef—and all of the other samples—were so delicious! My guest and I also tried samples of the beef and chicken broths used in the Pho Noodle Soups. The broths are made from scratch using beef and chicken bones, which are simmered up to 10 hours and are cooked with onion and cilantro. I preferred the beef broth over the chicken, as it had a heartier flavor, and I look forward to trying a hot bowl of Beef Pho from Anh’s Kitchen sometime in the near future. Anh’s Kitchen is a caring family’s endeavor to honor their mother, share their combined passion for food and cooking, and expand the culinary options available in the small town of Hercules and the surrounding area. None of the family members involved in the business has been formally trained in cooking, nor have they ever owned or managed a restaurant business. Yet Anh’s Kitchen has had a successful first year, and the family is looking forward to continuing to build on that success in the future. Although their kitchen is small, they are continuing to look at opportunities to add new entrees, and perhaps even offer dessert in the future. Anh’s does not currently offer catering options, but welcomes larger parties in their dining area. They do a robust take-out business, and tend to get very busy during lunch hours when local workers venture out to seek alternatives to fast food. If you’re looking for a great new Vietnamese restaurant with friendly, personalized service, add Anh’s Kitchen to your list of places to try for an upcoming lunch or dinner. The prices are reasonable and the food is authentic and delicious! And although she is a bit shy, say hello to Anh while you’re there, and give your compliments to the chef!
