Pho Tau Bay LTT – Santa Ana – 714-531-6634

3610W. First St, Suite C, 92703, closed Mondays, Open Tues-Sat: 8am – 8pm, Sun & Holidays: 8am – 4pm.

This place used to be famous for it’s hand made banh cuon (bun koon) but with my latest visit, the portions were sparse. The Pho here is not my favorite, I would go here for the banh cuon instead, although I like the Banh Cuon Tay Ho portions better.

Banh Cuon Tay Ho 4 – Westminster – 714-839-1389

Banh Cuon Tay Ho 4 – Westminster – 714-839-1389

9629 Bolsa Ave, 92683

One of the best places for banh cuon, thin rice sheets served with parboiled beansprouts and cha lua (pork ham) and fish sauce. You can get the rice sheets alone, banh uot, or with shredded pork mushroom filling, banh cuon nhan thit which is my favorite. Also served with fried yam/shrimp tempura.

This place is quite the roach motel, a strong smell of fish sauce and your feet stick to the ground.

Hong Mai – Westminster – (714) 839-3368

Hong Mai – Westminster – (714) 839-3368 – 9741 Bolsa Ave Ste. #114, 92683 – 1-888-HONGMAI

This is a small place more frequented by take out of orders of banh cuon (Bun Koon). Thin sheets of rice paper rolled around a ground pork and mushroom mixture served with fish sauce. I don’t like the banh cuon here as much as I like the Ban Cuon Tay Ho, the rice paper is much thinner and tastier. The bun vit sao mang(Bamboo noodle duck soup) is good here. Portions are small.
