Quick stop in Orange County: Brodard's and Tastea
On my drive from LA to SD yesterday, I made a quick stop in Orange County. At Brodard's, I got an order of nem nuong cuon, which came with a delicious orange dipping sauce (no idea what is in that sauce! but would be great to replicate if I could). Definitely the best version of these i've ever tried (granted, haven't tried many), and worth the stop. Also got a simple green iced tea w/ boba at Tastea. Boba were small but perfectly cooked, tea was fine. A very worthwhile way to break up a drive from LA to San Diego!
