Most folks who love Vietnamese food in Los Angeles know of, or more likely, have been to Golden Deli in San Gabriel.
I'm a victim of its greatness, meaning I don't go to Garden Grove/Westminster area because I can't imagine cha gio (fried rolls) or bun (grilled meat and sometimes fried rolls too over thin noddles, shredded lettuce and carrots) tasting any better than the stuff made in
G.D.'s kitchen. I'm sure I'm wrong, so feel free to correct my ignorance.
Here's a little pictorial reminder of the glories found within the walls of Golden Deli, from the fresh to the fried. It's also been spiffed up a lot since our last visit.
