I took a quick peek around here and a cursory search and it appears there’s been no mention of Viet Huong in El Monte.
So for those who have not been, or have not yet had this place on their foodar yet, let it be known that this place makes a seriously legit chả giò,
It’s stuffed with a perfect blend of ground pork and (get this!) fried slivers of rice paper – making the stuffing both savory and crunchy. The rolls themselves are fried to perfect blistery texture as well, and the nuoc cham that comes with it is redolent of umeboshi nectar.
Wash it all down with some very good nước rau má and life can be very good in El Monte.
Good good stuff.
By the way, here’s some history of Viet Huong from KCRW:
