Vietnamese Food in So Orange County
Looking for a recommendation for vietnamese restuarant with good pho and possible vietnamese pancakes. Preferably South Orange County. Thanks
The only pho place I've been to in South OC that I would return to is Pho Bo Vang in Lake Forest. That's not to say I've done some exhaustive survey of South OC's Vietnamese offerings, because I haven't...
That said, I'm sure you know that the epicentre of Vietnamese culture in SoCal is in North OC, not South... but it's easily accessible from the 405 or the 22.

re: Das Ubergeek
I have this past week gone to Pho Bo Vang twice for lunch, and enjoyed it very much. I must say however, that I really didn't see much difference between it and Pho Bac in Irvine. I am admittedly not at all knowledgeable about Vietnamese food, and have only had pho perhaps 6 or 8 times. I generally have it with lean beef either rare steak, brisket, or both. I know that several people have said that Pho Bo Vang is much better than Pho Bac, and since I didn't see much difference would like to know why others think PBV is better...is it the broth, the noodles, the beef, the condiments, or what? Also, what is it about the pho in Little Saigon than makes it even better. Please help me learn what it is that makes pho special!
