Only eight cities in California have officially recognized “Little Saigon” areas, and despite not being known as a bastion of culinary sophistication (yet), California’s capitol became one of them in 2010. In Sacramento, that designates a two mile stretch of Stockton Boulevard in South Sacramento as the cultural and culinary center of the Vietnamese immigrant community. Other cultures, including Cambodian and Lao restaurants, share space in this area as well, making it a dining destination for a variety of discerning diners.
Here are some spots to hit up for Vietnamese dishes of all kinds; some of them are to the north or south of the official bounds of the designated Little Saigon, but you needn’t stray from Stockton Boulevard to eat like royalty.
