Nguyen’s Kitchen

445 S. Main St.
Orange, CA 92868
Nguyen’s Kitchen is a Vietnamese restaurant in Orange. The menu is like a greatest hits of what’s popular with Asian-American foodies in OC right now. Fat macarons filled with ice cream sit in the freezer; Thai iced tea and Vietnamese iced coffee chill in a fridge. There’s Cajun crawfish pasta and Korean-style fried chicken and Taiwanese popcorn chicken and sliders enlivened with a black sauce that’s halfway between hoisin and teriyaki. The bánh mìs are hefty and on a ideally crispy baguette; rice bowls get topped with bulgogi or shrimp, then drowned in Sriracha. About the only thing missing here is poke.
