Thanh Ha is a Vietnamese restaurant in Westminster. They're a new challenger to the crown. It's barely a third the size of Van's and is so new right now the nice chairs and sleek tables are still unscuffed and gleaming, but its banh xeo is twice as big as you'll see anywhere else. Thanh Ha utilizes the largest wok possible instead of a regular pan to form its crepes, a method favored by Saigon banh xeo aficionados. The result is a thinner and even more delicate object, with the wingspan of small Cessna and so sheer you can see through it. Although Thanh Ha's banh xeo may be more crisp than crunchy, the pork is leaner than what others use, and the shrimp are completely deveined, cooked to a state of pink perfection.
