Favorite Bun Cha in L.A.?
A few different Vietnamese restaurants in L.A. have bun cha, but does anybody have a place they think makes it the best? This is a dish I feel the need to spend more time with.
I really don't know of any amazing Bun Cha in LA proper. Quan Hop in OC does a very good version. Their pork is good and the sauce has the right amount of funk.
I haven't really found any places in LA that have really good Hanoi-style food. I would also love to find a place that specializes in Hue food in SGV too. I'm open to suggestions.
What I wouldn't give for a Vien Dong in the West Hollywood/Hollywood area. Their grilled catfish dish is just my idea of heaven. Nothing bad on the menu including the bun cha dishes.
I like Bun Cha at Quan Huynh SE corner of Bolsa/Bushard better. Recession sale $4.99 now, they give you more pork patties and grilled pork.

I have no basis for comparison but I have really enjoyed the Bun Cha at Saigon on Santa Monica Blvd in West LA.
