OC Weekly's Description

This is Vietnamese cooking for the serious eater, for those of you who aren’t afraid of pig kidneys in your soup or gruff service at the counter. Canton is in what can be described as Little Saigon’s Chinatown, strip malls off Westminster Avenue and Newland Street where Chinese characters are as plentiful as South Vietnamese flags. The soups, however, are straightforward Mekong (and do order the soups: there’s a reason Canton’s Vietnamese name translates to “House of Soup,” and it’s not because of its awesome vintage marquee on the restaurant’s roof). And the strangest part of this self-deemed potage palace is that Little Saigon loves it best for the cháo, which isn’t technically a soup. The best one is their cháo cá, a tureen of rice and fish chunks spiked in fish oil, presented alongside a plate of ginger and slices of red snapper.

    Everyone will probably be ordering the Cha Ca Thang Long, just don't wear anything fancy here because you'll be smelling like fennel.

    They speak mostly Viet here. But the food is good. Just the perfect whole in the wall-hang over food, to get you through the day.
