Food Porn Friday | Quan Gio Bar and Grill | Garden Grove

Friday, December 20, 2013


While every type of cuisine has its fair share of bar food, I’d say the Vietnamese have got the market cornered on some of the tastiest exotic dishes when I feel like downing beers with my gal pals all night long. Enter Quan Gio Bar and Grill, part restaurant, part bar, and part "can't take the Saigon outta the girl" live music karaoke lounge.

 
  Yup, you heard that right, at approximately 9pm on any given night, hoochie-mama, daisy-dukes-clad middle-aged Paris-by-Night wannabes gyrate up to a makeshift stage to sing their hearts out in Vietnamese. 


And if these amateur performances haven't scared you off quite yet, after 10pm they start bumping trance like Swedish House Mafia made a quick cameo and turned this venue into an after-hours club-a-thon. Tell me YOUR pub crawls consist of something like these delectable dishes!


Yup, that’s what I thought! BOMB.com bar plates like grilled clams, roasted quail, shaken beef, Hamachi sashimi, and my fave skillet-fried broken rice with shredded pork and Chinese sausage. Yummmmm just like I was back in ‘Nam again y’all. Dirty dishware and heavy accents included.

*Insider’s tip: Wall-to-wall oversized TV screens let you and 50 of your homies spend countless hours holed up watching football/soccer/basketball while drinking the night away. Definitely not a place for tots to tag along so if you’re dining with the entire fambam, I’d come between lunchtime and 6pm before the Viet freaks come out at night. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!”

Happy Friday and as always...
Bon appétit mes amis!
