Song Long – (714) 775-3724 – Westminster

Posted by k on October 29, 2010

Song Long – (714) 775-3724 – Westminster – 9361 Bolsa Ave # 108, 92683
Hours as of 10/2010 were open 7 days a week 9am to 9:30pm

French/Vietnamese style dishes but the Cha Ca Thanh Long (Ja Ka Ton Long) which is the sizzling curry fish served with fresh fragrant dill herbs where you also mix yourself with vermicilli noodle, greens. Has other Vietnamese staples like bun thit nuong. I tried the banh khot (Bun Caulk) here and it was not good. That is the round little half rice cakes served with mint and lettuce. For good banh khot I recommend going to Khanh Hoa instead.

This place is also known for baked goods so if you order a french steak type dish you get the warmed up french roll which is not too bad.

Ban Mai – (714) 894-8432 – Westminster

Posted by k on October 28, 2010

Ban Mai – (714) 894-8432 – Westminster, 8890 Bolsa Ave, 92683
located in the ABC Supermarket complex near Bank of America.
A smelly, hole in the wall, probably rat infested place but known for the noodle soups.
Known for bun (boon) soups, in particular the bun thap cam (boon tup come) which is seafood noodle soup. The bun thit nuong (boon tick none) – cold vermicilli noodles with grilled pork isn’t too bad here either. The meat is a little on the fatty side but that is what makes it tasty.

Quan Hop – Westminster – (714) 689-0555

Quan Hop – Westminster – (714) 689-0555 – 15640 Brookhurst St, 92683

This place is owned by a brother of the Quan Hy owner. The food is somehow not as tasty. It’s ok, but if I had a choice I’d go to the Quan Hy place which is usually packed during lunch time so this could be an alternative if you don’t want to wait. Nothing spectacular stands out but it serves the same Bun Thit Nuong (Boon Tick Noong) – Noodles with meat, mint, beansprouts, lettuce with fish sauce. A light and healthy meal. Interestingly, this place used to be Pho Noodle shop but the lore is that a Mexican cook somehow fell in a vat of Pho broth and died & the Pho shop was never the same since. They had to close down. I don’t know if it’s a true story or not.

Quan Hy – Westminster (714) 775-7179

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

Quan Hy – Westminster (714) 775-7179  – 9727 Bolsa Ave, 92683 (Large Red Asian Pagoda Entrance)

Bun Thit Nuong (Boon Tick Noong) – Noodles with meat, mint, beansprouts, lettuce with fish sauce. A light and healthy meal. Be sure to try the Ban Beo (Bun Bail) here, a delicious appetizer served in individual little dishes of fresh shredded shrimp, fried shallots and green onion on top of a sticky rice pasta. Any of the rice dishes (Com) here also look very appetizing.
