Thang Long Restaurant – Westminster – (714) 531-9400

Thang Long Restaurant – Westminster – (714) 531-9400, 9550 Bolsa Ave #115A, 92683 Mon-Sun 9am-3am.

This took the place of the fancy Saigon Restaurant which didn’t do very well. Bright green walls and modern white chairs, no real specialties here but the Com Ca Salmon – Salmon and Rice dish is grilled and tasty. Small portions, not very crowded but spacious.

Todai – Westminster (714)891-0081 – 2008A Westminster Mall, 92683

This is a seafood buffet that has an unlimited sushi bar and crab/shrimp/n’ various sea creatures that seafood lovers love. There’s also the typical Chinese non-seafood stuff like fried rice, orange chicken, miso soup for land animal eaters only like myself. There will be something for everyone but the biggest enjoyment will be for seafood/sushi lovers. They have an excellent dessert selection with made-to-order crepes.

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.

Bo Luc Lac (Baw Luke Luck) – Diced cubed beef with salad. At Saigon Bistro they serve it with red or white rice. Besides Bo Luc Lac, you’ll find steak filets and chicken with wine sauce meals as well as traditional Vietnamese dishes.
