Looking For Leads: Hit-And-Run At Nudo Nudo

On Sunday evening, the staff at recently opened, insanely popular Nudo Nudo in Westminster got an unwanted visitor in the form of a car crashing through their front door. The good news was that nobody was hurt. Unfortunately, the asshole drove off before they could be identified.
Another passion project for Andy Nguyen, we wrote up his newest concept in Fountain Valley just last week. Nudo's minimalist space is his modern take on pho, with a few touches thrown in as only the Afters co-founder could. Think oxtail fries, strawberry plum lemonade and putting a fried egg atop your soup. We dined there over the weekend, chomping on juicy fried chicken and surprisingly affordable prices.
Nguyen anticipates repairs to be complete in time for a Tuesday reopening, per his personal Facebook page, "To hit and run from your recklessness shows how much of a selfish coward you are." Any information leading to the culprit should be directed to Westminster authorities or the team at Nudo Nudo. May the force be with you guys.
Nudo Nudo is located at 9393 Bolsa Ave, Westminster, (714) 839-8970; www.nudonudo.com.
