I love all kinds of food, but I am faced with a challenge. A very good friend wants me to take him to a Vietnamese restaurant, but I know from experience that there are many things he will not eat. He will not eat pork, or shellfish....and really doesn't like poultry or mushrooms. He is not a vegetarian, but will eat only selected meats (well done, extra lean beef) or fish (well done salmon, halibut, or sole). He will not eat any meat-based broth (chicken or beef), so I suppose pho is out. He is planning a trip to Vietnam, and has asked me to take him to a nice Vietnamese restaurant that might prepare him for his journey. I am pretty much at a loss. Does anyone know of a "nice", but still reasonably authentic Vietnamese restaurant in OC that will fill the bill? I know that there is one totally vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant in OC, but doubt that this will prepare someone for eating authentic Vietnamese food in Vietnam...am I right?
