Posted by k on October 21, 2010

Mirada Restaurant – Fountain Valley – (714) 842-7892 – 9102 Edinger Ave, 92708 between Bushard and Magnolia. Hours as of 10/2010 were: Mon-Thurs 11am – 9pm, Fri-Sun: 11am-9:30pm, Closed on Tuesday

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.

Huynh Restaurant – Westminster – (714) 531-7379

Huynh Restaurant – Westminster – (714) 531-7379 – 9500 Bolsa Ave # B,  92683

Another one of the new, modern Vietnamese restaurants that are popping up around Little Saigon. This one is surrounded by a bunch of new restaurants that hopefully will survive. Right on Bolsa Ave this little mom n’ pop restaurant is clean with good service and good food that is reasonably priced. They advertise their specialties as Bun Cha Ha Noi, Pho Ga, Cha Ca Thanh Long. I’ve only tried the Pho Ga and it’s ok, about on par as those other 50% off Pho Ga special places not as good as my favorite roach motel Pho 86. My husband is very fond of the Bun Oc (Boon Oak) here which is a noodle soup with snail meat. He says they serve more snail meat in the soup than most places. He also says the Com Phan Gia Dinh (Come Fun Ya Ding) is good here which is family style Vietnamese meals with a variety of soup, fish dish, meat dish, vegetable dish.
