Mignon Pho + Grill
3860 Convoy Street #116 & 117, San Diego, CA 92111
Tucked in one of the many mini-malls along Convoy Street, Mignon is a cut-above just another takeout place. Lots of honey-colored wood and high ceilings create a soothing, lofty atmosphere. Along one wall, a display of beer bottles end with a novelty: a cobra, coiled as if ready to strike, preserved in a bottle of vodka. Nor for sale.
Mignon has an intriquing selection of grilled skewers. An order of chicken hearts ($3.50) receives a touch of salt and pepper, a slice of lime, and nothing else since such a tidbit wants for very little alteration. Chicken gizzards, beef tongue, beef tenderloin, and frog legs round out the menu.
