Cay Dua Restaurant

3522 W. First St. Santa Ana, CA 92703 | Santa Ana | 714-839-7799

Location Description:

Cay Dua specializes in a strange soup called lau mam va rau that's the equivalent of an MRE, but without the dehydration and bad taste. Cooks boil multiple ingredients-herbs, fruits, spices, fish sauce, fish, pork and shrimp-in a shallow metal pot until everything reduces into a dense, murky broth the color of mud. Trust us-it's delicious.
