Does anyone know where to get Banh Hoi in Los Angeles? Had it at a friends house one day and been hooked ever since...

      Pho 79 in Alhambra and Downtown LA definitely has Banh Hoi Thit Nuong with all the fresh herbs and greens. You can also get it with the charboiled pork paste or shrimp paste wrapped over sugar cane. Hmmmm, my favorite!

        I just had it at Pho 79 in Alhambra (with the lemongrass beef) and it was SO good!! Even the next day!

        Golden Deli in San Gabriel on Las Tunas has great Banh Hoi. It's usually really fresh and the best consistency. I like it better than the usualy bun. It tends to have more flavor.

          sorry, i wasn't sure if you meant banh hoi to purchase vs. eating it at a restaurant. all of the listed places have banh hoi.

          Most Vietnamese restaurants will have banh hoi even if it's not on the menu. Especially any of the restaurants that sell the traditional Vietnamese tossed noodle (vermicelli) dishes. It's like an Italian restaurant that will have different types of pastas available for your selection.
