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 Minh Ky – Westminster – (714) 839-8734

Posted by k on December 8, 2008

One of many new, modern Vietnamese restaurant built in the large complex next to the older Quan Hy complex. This place has one of the most affordable Shaking Beef meals. Bo Luc Lac (Baw Luke Luck) – Diced cubed beef with salad. They serve it with either garlic rice, fried rice, or plain rice. I like it with plain rice because their rice options are too oily. They also have an expensive version of it which I have not tried. The specialty here Mi Hoanh Thanh Minh Ky is the Wonton Noodle soup with egg noodles. Nothing spectacular but not bad if you like wonton n’ egg noodles. Try it with the large egg noodles. A nice little place that is clean and modern.

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

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

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.

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.

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

Quan Vy Da – Westminster (714) 531-2905 – 9950 Bolsa Ave # B, 92683 (corner of Bolsa & Brookhurst)

Com Ga Dat Biet (Gum Gaah Dock Beak) – Chicken with Rice Special. Shredded chicken seasoned with salt and pepper, mint herbs, vinegar and rice cooked with chicken broth, served with ginger fish sauce. A light and healthy meal. Quite a few people like the Bun Bo Hue (Boon Baw Way) here too. The Ban Beo (Bun Bail)  is served in individual little dishes and is tasty too.
