Pho Mai Nguyen (the Catfish Place)


I've not been to many Vietnamese places but the catfish here is the best I've had.   It's great.  In fact it's so good I could each just that as my only dish plus some rice.  My friend Neil introduced me to this place. Vietnamese style eggrolls are also very good.  You roll them in a piece of lettuce and then dip them in a semi sweet reddish orange sauce.  Yum!  Another thing to try is the combination BBQ pork and vermicelli

Directions: Going north on Brookhurst from the 405 you pass Hazard street.  On the right will be a long strip mall. That strip mall will end at a small neighborhood street and the first restaurant in the next strip mall that starts on the other side of that neighborhood street is the place.
