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

Posted by k on January 25, 2008

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.

Arriba – Fountain Valley – (714) 378-1638 – Talbert Ave & Brookhurst Ave.

Mai Thai – Fountain Valley (714) 963-4929 – 17938 Magnolia St, 92708

Thai Food – Pad see ew, pad thai, beef salad are some of my favorite Thai dishes. Most Thai places have affordable lunch time specials that include a crispy appetizer, soup, and salad. Curry with coconut milk is common to most Thai dishes. The soups are a good variety ranging from hot and sour soup, coconut milk soup, noodle and tofu soup, to a whole meal of hot pot Thai soup.

Pholicious – Fountain Valley (714)378-9923

Pholicious – Fountain Valley (714) 378-9923 – 10585 Slater Ave, Unit 4A,  92708  (Corner Slater & Ward)

Pho (Fuh) – Most popular noodle soup of Vietnam. Rice noodle with meat usually beef, onion, ginger broth, beansprouts, lime, and basil. There are hundreds of Pho noodle shops and each one depends on personal tastes. A common misconception is that you have to drink all the broth in the entire soup thus Pho is too filling of a meal. But in reality most people just eat the noodles and meat and leave a large portion of the broth uneaten. Pho broth is very fatty by the way so it is unhealthy to drink it in large amounts on a daily basis.
