News flash: There's good Vietnamese food on the Westside! banjoboy has grown accustomed to driving up to Van Nuys or out to San Gabriel for a Vietnamese fix, but Sawtelle's brand-new Nong Lá is utterly legit. The bun dishes in particular are very good. "Portions might be a bit smaller than some of the other Vietnamese places I've been to, but the quality of the food and ingredients is at another level," says banjoboy.
