Le Croissant Dore – (714) 895-3070 – Westminster – 9122 Bolsa Ave, 92683

This French Vietnamese bakery is known for its fruit topped flan cakes Ban Trai Cay (Bun Try Kay) which are often ordered for parties. Many tasty french style pastries but this place is also know for its Bo Kho with Banh Mi or Hu Tieu (Baw Hall with Bun Me or Who Tew) Beef stew with French Bread or Noodles. Bo Kho is a spicy & hearty beef stew with carrots, beef chunks, onion, tendon, and a bit of curry spice.

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.

Uyen Thy Bistro – Westminster – (714) 898-9889

Yen Thy Bistro – Westminster – (714) 898-9889 – 9030 Bolsa Ave #101, 92683 (Behind the 7-11 store)

One of many French-Vietnamese cafes in Orange County serving French influenced Vietnamese food like steak and wine chicken. Located in the former place of well-known french/viet Tai Buu restaurant. Nothing particular stands out as awesomely good but not bad either. The Com Ga Xe Phai (kum gahh sair fye) shredded chicken & rice here is good but a little on the sweet side, they must have a heavy hand with the sugar. I also like the bamboo shoot and chicken noodle soup cause it seems healthy but a little tasteless for those who don’t like bamboo shoots which is an acquired taste imho.

Thanh Restaurant – Irvine – 949-559-7788

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

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.
