Little Saigon (Westminster, CA)

3

A place where the Vietnamese transferred long time ago. Where you could find traditional Vietnamese food.

Little Saigon is located in Westminster and Garden Grove in southern CA. It is the largest population of Vietnamese living outside of Vietnam in the United States. Many Vietnamese arrived here in the late 1970’s and the 1980’s and they continue to settle here today. It is a small area based mainly on Bolsa Ave, but it is overflowing with interesting shops, and almost 200 restaurants, delis and bakeries.

Little Saigon is home to Phước Lộc Thọ, or the Asian Garden Mall. It is a great place for traditional or not so traditional Vietnamese food, or just a great place to poke around for a few hours. There are lots of little shops and some very cozy places to sit if you want to meditate with the various Buddha statues sitting around. A great place for when you want to immerse yourself in another culture.
