Cơm tấm, or ‘broken rice’, is literally made out of broken rice grains, served with a variety of Vietnamese entrees.
At Com Tam Thuan Kieu, very popular among Vietnamese folks in the San Gabriel area, you can choose your sides. My sister and I opted for grilled pork and 7 sides (a fried egg roll, steamed egg, shrimp cakes, pickled vegetables), for only $7.99.
The dish came with 2 bowls of meaty soup and was enough to feed the both of us.
