Ready to discover the latest restaurant additions to Huntington Beach? From a Vietnamese pho spot to reimagined grilled cheese sandwiches to specialty doughnuts, read on for the newest spots to make their debut.

Pho Hoa An


Pho Hoa An is a Vietnamese spot that's located at 7451 Edinger Ave., Suite 104.

At this newly revamped spot, look for appetizers like crab puffs and tofu spring rolls with peanut sauce. Main dishes include fried rice dishes, hot pot and the eponymous pho. Customers can also opt for chef's specials that include Vietnamese crepes and chicken curry. (You can view the full menu here.)

Yelper Jordan C., who reviewed the spot Aug. 18, wrote, "Our favorite pho restaurant at the moment. They're quick, fairly priced and their Vietnamese coffee is so good!

Wander over to 120 Fifth St. and you'll find Grater Grilled Cheese, a new deli and traditional American spot, offering sandwiches and more.

According to the business' website, the growing regional chain -- with locations in San Diego, Irvine and Eastlake (coming soon) -- began with "a passion for the great American grilled cheese sandwich and a food truck."

On the menu,, look for options that include the butter-fried lobster grilled cheese with crab or the Caprese grilled cheese with tomato, fresh basil, balsamic glaze and pesto aioli. (See the full menu here.)
