A public service to LA-based hounds: The definitive Little Saigon glovebox list...?

Mr Taster | Mar 3, 2007 07:09 AM

Trekking through Disney's corporate version of happiness all day left my LTA (Lovely Tasting Assistant) and I with a chill in our spines-- a chill that only a steaming bowl of pho could knock out.

The problem is, I live in the Fairfax District and don't get to OC very often, so I had no idea where to go! I need your help, fellow hounds.

I desperately need the definitive WVGL (Westminster Vietnamese Glovebox List) to print out and keep permanently in my car. I feel that there are likely many LA hounds who could also greatly benefit from such a service.

Bear in mind, this doesn't need to be an exhaustive list... simply one with 5 to 10 of the absolute best that the Little Saigon area has to offer, with a few late-night alternatives.

I'll start with the meager few that I've tried. Also, because many restaurants in Westminster seem to have multiple locations, can you list the intersection of the one you're specifically referring to?


..........................let's begin The Little Saigon Glovebox List! (remember, it doesn't have to only be Pho... but it does need to be super-delicious)

Banh Mi Che Cali (Brookhurst and McFadden) - the definitive location, which bakes bread on-site. At other locations the bread purportedly does not taste as fresh.

Pho 79 (Hazard and Brookhurst) - confusingly hidden BEHIND a strip mall-- look for big sign out front, but then drive around back to actually get to the place. There is another location in a westminster shopping mall at 9200 Bolsa Ave which I have not tried.

Your turn!
