This is a family favorite restaurant. Run down and dirty as most Vietnamese restaurants are, but the food is good for  the big family style meals featuring fish. Pricier than typical Vietnamese restaurants but the fish is fresh. Ca Kho To (Ka Hall Toe) – Fish in a sweet caramel sauce. Com Gia Dinh (Gum Ya Din) Family style meals – usually with Rau Muong (Rao Moon)- spinach-like salad, ca hap (Ka Hup) – fish crispy and in a caramel sauce, also Ca Bap Choi soup (Ka Bup Chew) – fish soup.

Kobe Sushi – Fountain Valley – 714-968-9938

Posted by k on April 12, 2009

Kobe Sushi – Fountain Valley – 714-968-9938, 10585 Slater Ave Unit 8A & B. Low cost sushi joint where they have a 50% off sushi deal from 5pm-7pm Mon-Thurs. Run by Vietnamese owners so may not be 100% authentic Japanese. I stopped going here because the wait service was slow and they screwed up my order one too many times. However if you want cheap sushi, this may be the place for you.

Hot Pot City – Westminster – (714) 531-5402

Posted by k on December 15, 2008

Hot Pot City – Westminster – (714) 531-5402, 15606 Brookhurst St, Suite F, 92683, Fax: (714) 531-5404, http://hotpotcity-tablebbq.com

This Vietnamese buffet is similar to Korean BBQ places where you grill your own food at your table. It also serves a popular Vietnamese family style soup called Lau where a big boiling soup is placed in the center and you cook the meat and seafood and each person takes a little with rice noodle in their small bowls. The nice thing about this buffet is you only pay for how much you eat, you go to the back fridge, take plates of raw meat or veggies to your table and they count how many empty plates you have left to total your bill. Good for those people who don’t eat a lot.

It’s located next to the Coffee Factory, Taco Bell, and Quan Hop restaurants.
