I had a great dinner of Seven Courses of Beef (Bo 7 Mon) with several food blogger friends last night that got me thinking about how little I've tapped the glorious culinary jungle that is Orange County's Little Saigon. "Beach", our host and local guide last night, confided to me that most restaurants in Little Saigon specialize in one dish that they each do really really well, and often these dishes may not be on their menus. Intrigued, I decided to go on a tasting tour of Little Saigon to search out the best Vietnamese specialty cuisine the area has to offer.
So, I put to all of you Little Saigon locals these questions: If you were going on a tasting tour of Little Saigon, where would you eat, what would you eat, and in what order would you visit the restaurants?
Since I want to go, but can't afford to vacation in Vietnam at the moment, please take me on a tour of the country through the food.
