Tiger prawns and garlic noodles

The name of an old favorite dish at the Vietnames fusion restaurant Three Seasons in Palo Alto. Well, its old name — it’s now listed as “Grilled prawns and garlic noodles” — and I much prefer the old one, because “Tiger prawns and garlic noodles” is a perfect line of trochaic tetrameter:

SW SW SW SW

(the verse line of so much folk and popular music). In a fancy photographic presentation:

The noodles are enlivened by shallots and parmesan cheese. A flatter, more ordinary presentation, from the Beverly Hills restaurant Crustacean:

John Le, the owner of Three Seasons, posted #1 on Facebook on May 22nd to celebrate the 16th anniversary of the restaurant’s opening.
