like mayweather v. hatton, it's time to have at it.
for my money, my favorites are golden deli (san gabriel) and pho 79 (alhambra). there's also golden deli's offshoots (vietnam house, saigon flavor), and pho superbowl, which ain't bad but i just hate the name. some people also seem to like pho pasteur and "that one place behind the auto body shop on garvey in rosemead that chases you away" - i completely forgot if it even has a name.
i've only been to ONE place in little saigon, pho 79 (on bolsa?) and that was some 10 years ago... i remember being unimpressed.
now is the time for OC pho phans to step up in defense of their favorites ( Pho Thanh Lich? 79? Brodard Chateau? whatever else is down there?). i'm game to check out any reports of worthiness behind the orange curtain.
as for the LA/SGV supporters, (spring) roll with me and back me up with your own favorites.
btw, i was totally pulling for ricky hatton last night (> _ <)...
