Fancy place that you almost should dress up but don’t have to, ’cause I’m sure they’ll take you’re money no matter how you’re dressed.

Thanh Restaurant – Irvine – 949-559-7788

Thanh Restaurant – Irvine – 949-559-7788 – www.thanhrestaurant.com  15315 Culver Drive #140, 92604

Very clean and nicely decorated upscale restaurant befitting of it’s Irvine location.

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.
