A few of us decided to visit the two Daniel's in Costa Mesa, and L was talking about a really yummy Vietnamese restaurant around there so after much debate we decided to go. L kept raving about their spring rolls(nem nuong), to be honest i was thinking, "yeah right, how good can spring rolls be."
The restaurant looks pretty big and it was packed on a weekday. The wait wasn't too long though which we appreciated, and as we were getting seated EVERY table had a plate of nem nuong. It took our table of 5 thirty minutes to decide what we wanted. We had a blast looking at yelp and questioning our server on yelp pictures. Although i'm a devoted hater of yelp, i have to say yelp saved the day.

I love the variety of condiments, I LOVE condiments in general but I was wondering what the garlic was for. Maybe someone can tell me? :)
The two Daniel's.
Nem Nuong Cuon - This was really good, i was so surprised too! There's something about the spring roll, maybe it's the crispy wonton skin? or the delicious sauce that comes with. Or the pork loaf, whatever it is... the combination is superb.
This sauce is served warm, it was so good. The rolls are only good fresh though
See the crispy wonton skin? Yum.
condiments for our noodles (bun hue ?)

I really enjoyed Brodard, if they weren't that far away I'd visit frequently. Maybe i'd just order the nem nuongs since they were that good!!
