Brodard Restaurant


As you drive from Garden Grove to Fountain Valley, even many of the street signs are in Vietnamese, giving you some sense of what the area is all about. Restaurants, although plentiful, are only a small portion of all the Vietnamese-owned businesses in the area.

The Brodard "empire" is shifting and this new outpost is the new home of their famous nem nuong operation. (Be careful as the old location up in Garden Grove switched to a vegetarian restaurant and seems to have closed now.)

Before getting to those famous rolls, try the Saigon style spring rolls or bì cuốn (above), which have shredded pork, pork skin, and toasted rice powder inside with fresh vegetables.

The nem nuớng cuốn (below) are the star of the show of course and should not be passed up, grilled pork spring rolls wrapped with vegetables and served with their house special sauce.

Also very tasty are the bánh khọt tôm (below), crispy rice cakes filled with shrimp, mung bean, scallions, and turmeric. These are eaten with greens and lime chili fish sauce.
