If you find yourself one day roaming the streets of Saigon in Vietnam, you will notice that this name “Mi La Cay” is a popular name among the noodle franchises there. Mi La Cay is a special type of Vietnamese Noodle.
Mi La Cay is a special kind of noodle that is great for trying a little bit of everything in my opinion. There are two ways of cooking mi la cay: there is a crispy version where the noodles are deep fried (not pan fried) so that they are crispy and served under your choice of meats and vegetables; and a soft version which is used in the soup dishes that are boiled.
I was heading over to try Kups when I saw the sign for Mi La Cay and decided to go and try it out. This is the first and only Mi La cay franchise in the Georgia Area – the other US branches of this franchise can be found around California ( I believe there are only about 4 locations scattered there). That said, I am excited to try something different and rare. The owner Hsi has been here about a year and has moved here from California where she ran another Mi La Cay for ten years. That said, she has a bit of experience with these noodles and I loved the dish that I got.
