Plain and simple, Com Tam Thuan Kieu’s broken rice platter is the best value in Little Saigon. Located in a strip mall right on Bolsa Ave., this low-key spot doesn’t have the big crowds or high energy of some of the surrounding restaurants, and that’s exactly what we like about it. This is the kind of place you come to after a long day, sit in blissful silence, and eat an $11.99 platter of broken rice (fractured rice grains) topped with seven different items that range from grilled pork to egg rolls to tofu shrimp paste. But perhaps the best thing about a meal at Com Tam is the fact you’ll have leftovers tomorrow. Cash only.
