Quan Thanh – Santa Ana – (714) 775-4838

Quan Thanh (714) 775-4838 – www.thanhrestaurant.com  120 S. Harbor Blvd, ste H, 92707

Food is always good at any of the 3 Thanh restaurants, but this one is the worst in cleanliness and a turn off.

Com Tam (Gum Tum) – translates to broken rice. A filling meal of rice with delicious grilled meat or seafood, served with pickled vegetables, sometimes with egg-foo-young patty or a fried egg. Drizzle the fish sauce all over and you’ve got a pretty tasty rice dish.

I like the Com Ga (Gum Gaah) – Chicken Rice from the Thanh (Ton)  restaurant in Irvine. They put these tasty thin onion ring-like strips over a generous portion of the salad.

Bun Vit Sao Mang (Boon Veet Sal Mong) is also good here – light chicken broth soup that has noodles, bamboo shoots, and imitation soy duck served on a bed of shredded cabbage. I like the Hu Tieu (Who Tew) soup with Wontons at this place as well.
