In an area filled with neighborhood staples, Song Long stands as perhaps its most iconic. This family-run restaurant is one of the oldest in Little Saigon (it opened in 1981 as a French bakery) and is now a place where families and large groups of friends gather daily to eat both Vietnamese and French specialties. Everyone is eating the cha ca thang long, a dill-and-turmeric infused catfish dish that’s one of our favorites in all of Little Saigon, but don’t ignore the bo kho stew, cooked with cinnamon, or the escargot appetizer, which we’d put against any version in town.
