Vietnam's Pearl

1215 Baker St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626 | Costa Mesa | 714-540-2212

Location Description:

Available prepackaged for a quick snack or light lunch, the shrimp-only, shrimp-and-pork or tofu-only rolls at Vietnam Pearl are a steal. Because the owners here don't skimp on any of the complementary elements -the requisite cilantro, basil or mint sprigs wedged neatly beside vermicelli noodles, or crunchy, translucent sprouts peeking out alongside pieces of fresh lettuce-the result is a hearty, almost meaty roll that makes for mouthful after mouthful of fresh Vietnamese goodness. At $4 for two oversized rolls and sauce, nothing hits the spot-or complements Pearl's equally satisfying pho-better than these little suckers.
