Thang Long Restaurant – Westminster – (714) 531-9400, 9550 Bolsa Ave #115A, 92683 Mon-Sun 9am-3am.

This took the place of the fancy Saigon Restaurant which didn’t do very well. Bright green walls and modern white chairs, no real specialties here but the Com Ca Salmon – Salmon and Rice dish is grilled and tasty. Small portions, not very crowded but spacious.

Grand Com ga Hai Nam – Garden Grove – (714) 638-1310, 9904 Westminster Ave, 92844

Located in the Mall of Fortune complex close to the Hong An and Binh Minh restaurants. This place specializes in Com Ga Hai Nam (Come Gaah High Nam) which is chopped pieces of cold chicken still on the bone served with Vietnamese salad/herbs and ginger fish dipping sauce. Not my favorite because the chicken is tasteless and cold for my Americanized palatte, but the Com Ga Xe Phai (Come Gaah Sair Five) is quite good which is shredded chicken with herbs tossed in a tangy sweet vinger sauce and chicken broth cooked rice. I tried the Pho Ga Kho (Fahh Gaah Ho) which is dry Pho Ga but it was tasteless and I wouldn’t recommend it. Go for the regular Pho Ga soup not the dry version if you want to try the soup here.
