Little Saigon in Westminster, California is home to the largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam which means access to a wide array of delicious Vietnamese cuisine. Everything from banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) to pho (rice noodles) and everything in between all conveniently located in one area. Yet, with a wealth of small mom pop joints it's hard to distinguish which spot to check out. There are so many shops competing against one another that many of the restaurants offer a 50% off any pho bowls (dine-in only).
The 50% off price tag attracts many customers and greatly appeals to a bargain hunter like myself, but when I'm craving Vietnamese noodles I without doubt will go to my child-hood favorite joint--Pho 79. Above is a photo of my hubby's large pho bowl with meatballs.
While it's not the most cost-efficient choice, the food served at Pho 79 is just extremely flavorful and completely worth the full price IMHO ($5-$9 depending on size). But ironically I no longer order the Pho here... I get bun (image above). The bun (vermicelli noodles) is hiding under all the wonderful proteins and veggies *drools* Read my yelp review on all the details.
The food here is yummy that my hubby kept sneaking some bites when I wasn't looking. lol Not all Pho restaurants all the same and Pho 79 is definitely among the best.
Do you have a favorite Vietnamese noodles restaurant?
