Com Tam Dat Thanh

Pin It Now!
It's so hard to find a good com tam (broken rice) in SF.  I have to drive all the way to San Jose when I need a fix.  Com Tam Dat Thanh is one of a handful of places in San Jose to get good com tam. 
Don't know what to order?  You can never go wrong with the dac biet (special combination).  Seriously a little bit of everything:  bbq pork, grilled shrimp, an eggroll, minced shrimp on sugarcane, shrimp cake, and shredded pork.  My favorites were the minced shrimp on sugarcane and the bbq pork.  Best thing about com tam is pouring the nuoc mam (fish sauce) on top and letting it soak into the com tam.  Com tam soaks up the flavors of the meats and the fish sauce so perfectly. 
Another one of my favorite dishes, especially on a warm day, is bun (vermicelli noodles) with bbq chicken and an egg roll.  The "salad" under the vermicelli noodles is always so refreshing.  The grilled meats, especially the chicken and pork, are so delicious here.  The nuoc mam here is slightly sweeter than at most Vietnamese rice dish spots.
