Westminster Vietnamese

Ate at a great little Vietnamese restaurant in Westminster a couple of years ago. The name escapes me now but I would like to find this place again. Can you tell me your favorite places? This place was on a major street-- Westminster I think in a little strip mall on the south side of the street. Maybe I can find my way back there again. It was family owned and operated. I remember a young man helping to cook the items.

    A couple of threads that may help jog your memory (or give you leads to a new favorite).

      Servorg: thanks for the links. It definitely wasn't Brodard because I remember having that place marked on a map. It was much smaller than that and family owned and operated. More hole in the wall and not upscale.

        I hope it wasn't Xanh Bistro as it's out of business now.

                Vientienne is our fav resto right now. And Beer Lao seems so special when we're there.
