Regional Vietnamese SD

Is San Diego's Vietnamese restaurant scene advanced enough to identify certain restaurants regionally? I was reading in the Oxford Companion to Food book a couple days back of the breakdown of Vietnam into 3 regions and their respective 'culinary capitals.' Hanoi, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City: North, Central, and southern.

Is SD's vietnamese immigrant base drawn largely from one region? Are certain restaurants known to be specialist in certain regional dishes (outside of Pho)?

Which restaurants to you go and for what dishes?

This may be a question more suited for a town such as westminster but I thought Id try.
