Every now and then, I will get a text message from a friend or colleague, “Where should I go in Westminster for a good bowl of pho?”
Here is a list of Pho restaurants in Orange County I’d recommend:
Pho 79 is secretly hidden on Hazard located near a liquor store plaza on Brookhurst, this place is a hidden gem in the heart of Bolsa. Bolsa is the name of a busy street in the city of Westminster, known for its population of Vietnamese immigrants. The area is also known as Little Saigon. Pho 79 has delicious homemade-style pho with rich Vietnamese spices. Parking is limited and its closed on Wednesday.
Pho Bom is a son’s gift to his mom.The owners of the restaurant are dedicated to using fresh ingredients and high-quality stock for the broth. Oferring an array of Vietnamese Cuisines, they have a selection of warm noodles: Bun Rieu, Pho, Banh Canh, or Bun Bo, the broth gets warmed up separately to keep its original flavors without diluting the broth. The owner’s son wanted to share his mom’s culinary skills with the world by opening Pho Bom.
Pho Vie II is located in the Target Shopping Center right in the corner of Westminster and Brookhurst. My dad’s favorite place to eat pho. This restaurant is known for its 50% off pho specials. The quality is decent for its price, it attracts frugal eaters and locals.
