Hoai Hue Restaurant- Located in an urban area that is also considered Vietnamese town, they have the best Bun Bo Hue in town! While you're in town here, go to the Vietnamese shopping markets nearby! Address: 4660 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92115
777 Noodle House - From wonton noodles to yummy appetizers and boba drinks, this place is an authentic noodle house and the prices won't break your bank either.

Ly's Garden Chinese Restaurant - They serve authentic family style Chinese dishes here. At lunchtime, they have amazing lunch specials with heo quay and vit quay (roast port and peking duck) plates. My parents are regulars here. They also sometimes have weddings on weekend evenings. Address: 4350 54th St, Ste B, San Diego, CA 92115
Pho Hoa - This is one of the oldest standing pho restaurants in San Diego so that is very telling that they have their pho done right! Parking can be tricky during busy hours. This is also my personal favorite spot for pho! Address: 4717 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92115
Vietnamese Dishes to Cook at Home
If your supermarket has a lot of ground turkey options, make stuffed bell peppers for a healthy meal over rice.
Instead of using that butcher knife, make lemongrass chicken with leg quarters. It tastes good!
Vietnamese Banh Mi (sandwiches) is an international favorite. With pickled daikon and carrots, cilantro and selective meats, this sandwich will make your taste buds dance.
Do you have leftover ground pork? Make Vietnamese egg rolls!
