What we're about
There is something magical about sharing good food. From a good meal flow laughter, fun, friendship, and learning, not to mention the anticipation of your taste buds when you catch your first glance of the mouth-watering Viet or Viet-fusion dish. From the well-known and ultra popular Pho and Banh Mi, to traditional classics like Bun Bo Hue and sweets like Almond Milk Tea and Vietnamese Che, there is no shortage of temptations for your taste buds. That is what this group, Viet Taste Buds, is all about...sharing our good tastes, whether newly discovered exotics like Shrimp Pork Belly Burger and Banh Mi Xiu Mai or a go-to standby like Combination Fried Rice.
Join us to share and discover good tastes. See what the hub of Viet and Viet-fusion foods that is Orange County has to offer. Along the way, there will most likely be fun, friendship, education, and cultural appreciation.
Most importantly, you don't have to be Vietnamese or Vietnamese-American to be our Viet-Taste Buds. Everyone is welcome. Just bring your good tastes and love for discovery and sharing.
If you enjoy hosting and gathering people to explore Viet and Asian-fusion eats, even better. We strive to have a small ratio of Event Organizers to members. Even though we are very selective with our Event Organizers, our motto is "Share Your Good Tastes", so we love our Event Organizers.
If you love meeting people and contributing to a dynamic and fun community, ask to become an Event Organizer and help your taste buds spread their good tastes.
