Chandler / Vietnamese -- Hot Spots

Dmnkly | May 23, 201002:54 AM     30

Though visiting Disney with the family, I snuck out the past two nights to hit some late-night Orange County Vietnamese -- of which there's a shocking amount -- and am feeling particularly inspired.

There's more to Vietnamese than pho, and it seems like there's an awful lot of territory in Chandler and Mesa that needs exploring. But I could use a little help identifying where to start. I know there are a few Vietnamese restaurants in the mall with Mekong and it looks like there's more by Lee Lee and around that Warner/Dobson corner, but if the community can support two markets that big, there have to be more.

I'm trying to feed some keywords into Google maps and I'm finding lone joints here and there, but I'm not coming up with any densely-populated stretches. Can anybody who lives down there or spends time down there point out any geographical hot spots? Has anybody noticed any other areas where multiple Vietnamese restaurants are clustered?

Also, has anybody done a good, comprehensive sweep of the area? I'm finding very little info (though this may be more a function of my searching skill) and it's almost exclusively pho. I'm thinking it's time to do some digging and would love to know if anybody has a good head start.
