A block and a half from the sand, China Beach Vietnamese Bistro in Venice has been catering to the tourists, hippies, hobos and rasta set for many years. Owner Hi?p Th? Lê grew up along China Beach in Vietnam, a tranquil sand bluff. After the Vietnam War, she immigrated to Los Angeles and started a family and a restaurant.
China Beach currently serves a fast-casual menu of Vietnamese dishes, though it's not all that well-loved by local residents. Seeking a different lifestyle, Hi?p has put her restaurant on the market for $325,000. It's a turn-key sale, meaning the place comes as is, with full kitchen, dining area, patio and a couple of parking spaces. Interested buyers should contact My Tran at 310-826-9111. [EaterWire]
