Bun Bo Hue/Viet Huong Restaurant (El Monte)

I came across Viet Huong in El Monte when I was driving through the area and wanted Vietnamese but wasn't in the mood for pho that day. I haven't seen this place mentioned on Chowhound but it is quite popular amongst the regional Yelpers:

The bun bo hue came highly recommended there and I have to say - it's become one of my favorite noodle soups anywhere in the SGV...though I find it hard to properly describe except to say it's somewhere in between pho and Chinese beef noodle soup (not as minimalist as the former nor as in-your-face as the latter). Hearty and satisfying, regardless.

Would love recommendations for other places that serve an exemplary BBH?

By the way tried Golden Deli's and found it completely inferior. Also tried Nem Nuong Kanh Hoa's and also was left underwhelmed.
