The pictures look nice, I will check the Banh Khot out. Banh Khot looks promising, the veggie is so green. Thanks for the post. I can imagine how it's like answering the phone there already ;P

Nice post. Good pics. Great find. The range of VN places on that stretch of El Cajon Blvd continues to amaze me.


Thanks for reviewing them, Mizducky! I noticed them last Saturday but went for some old standbys instead. Next time, it's Banh Khot.


I was in the area a couple of Saturdays ago, but didn't drive past this strip mall (was going to A Chau but they were closed).

From the photo, it looks like O'Yea is where Tay Ho used to be. Did you notice if this place had banh cuon on the menu?


Hi yy--Thanks! FYI--for some reason, O'Yea!'s menu spells it "banh kot" without the "h," but now Google is telling me the preferred spelling is as you have it, with the "h" -- oops! For that matter, I realize I'm also leaving off lots of diacritical marks -- I'm just too lazy to figure out how to enter them. :-)

Hi Ed--I know, every time I drive through that stretch of El Cajon Blvd., I find myself thinking "so many restaurants, so little time! (and leeway on my scale!)"

Hi Trent--Cool! I'll be interested to hear others' takes on this restaurant too.

Hi Sandy--I checked my copy of their takeaway menu -- alas, no banh cuon. But yeah, I believe this is the same storefront. And I think there's been other restaurants in this spot as well.


Too bad the broth were all just so-so but they all do look very good! I've always wanted to try banh khot but never remember to look for it. I'll have to keep that in mind for the next time. Thanks for the review!


My sister and I went there and try the Banh Khot. It was pretty good. I love "rau rap ca'" the sour heart shape veggie (is it how we call it?). We also ordered Bun Rieu, but we'll return for Banh Khot =) They don't have all the listed drinks yet, but their coffee is awesome. I hope they'll last.


Hi Carol--you're welcome! And remember, I haven't tried *all* the soups yet, so there may yet be some winners to be discovered.

Hi yy--glad you liked the banh khot! Is this the heart-shaped leaf you mean? I tried it, but I think I might need a few more times to appreciate its flavor ...


Yes, that's the one. You're good. I tried to find a picture of it, but I failed.
