gonna be in that area on monday and was wondering if there are any really good, authentic vietnamese restaurants, with good pho? i am pretty spoiled with pho in the san gabriel area..esp golden deli!
i've been to a pretty bad one that used to be on western and redondo beach? i'm afraid to try pho since i had a bad experience. so, if anyone can suggest a great pho place or even a place to warm up since it's soooo cold these days.. btw, i eat soon tofu all the time so kinda wanna try something else! thanks!

    Hong Vi at 15170-80 S. Prairie, Lawndale is pretty good for all around Vietnamese. I really like the pho at the place in the little strip mall (do not know name) on Crenshaw Blvd. just north of Manhattan Beach Blvd. before the IHOP. I agree the stuff at Western and Redondo was just kinda strange tasting.

        I agree on Pho Hong Long, I tried it yesterday. The broth was rich and flavorful, the veggies that they give are really fresh. Would definitely go back for the pho, the x-large is only 7.25 and it's huge. Also ordered the grilled pork over rice with 2 fried egg rolls which wasn't really too good at all. The jackfruit smoothie had more pineapple flavor than jackfruit flavor, so I think stick to the pho it's what they do best!
