Vietnamese rice in a hot pot
I recently moved back to L.A. from St. Louis, where - if you can believe it - there was phenomenal Vietnamese food. My favorite dish from my favorite restauraunt was rice in a hot pot - a mix of cooked rice, brown sauce, vegetables and some kind of protein, all baked in a metal pot so that the bottom and sides got crispy. I would kill to find it here in Los Angeles - has anyone seen or had anything similar?
Can you make it down to Westminster? Luc Dinh Ky is a restaurant that specializes in this dish. Free nuoc mat (cane iced tea) too.
9600 Bolsa Ave (just East of Bushard). They recently opened a second place down the street towards Brookhurst. Check the address and make sure you're at the right one.
oddasiangirl: this may be more of a Chinese dish.

used to be called "brodard 2" after the famous vietnamese place in little saigon.
I just want to let you all know, Nha Trang has nothing anymore.
Its just the normal Pho's, 3 types of Vermicilli, 3 types of Rice , and 3 types of eggrolls.
No clay rice pot, no Bun cha (even though their outside walls say it).
