By in 01: San Gabriel, Favorite Food Entries

The Northern Vietnamese dishes we had at Little Saigon was unforgettable. Thank goodness I read from Eat drink and be merry that there’s a closer alternative: Pho Le Loi.

The much hyped (from Silver Lake people) Vietnamese Soy Cafe on Hyperion have such odd opening hours that it seems eternally closed for almost every day of the week.
