If you’re seeking a Vietnamese restaurant that’s authentic and economical, Bun Belly probably isn’t for you. But this small self-described “contemporary” place has the bonuses of a smart interior (blond bamboo paneling and “sputnik” lighting fixtures) and prices that are fine if you can handle $9 for a good-sized but…
Viet-Cajun seafood and noodles—what’s not to like?
Stylish digs, exceptional Vietnamese cuisine.
Red and black walls, comfortable booths, and a few jolly, plump Buddhas placed around the room give a decidedly Asian feeling. We marveled first at the precise wrapping on the translucent rice-paper rolls (bursting with shrimp, marinated green papaya, and vermicelli), then even more at their layers of flavor. Ca…

This tiny East Dallas spot has a cult following.
Vietnamese cuisine has had only sporadic lodging here, with not much success. But this latest venue shows promise, even if the setting is somewhat antiseptic and the menu limited. Tight spring rolls are crunchy with cabbage and pork and best when dredged in a trio of sweet and hot sauces.

Fresh, clean tastes from veteran John Nguyen make this place a classic.
Pho from A to Z.
Fresh, fragrant Vietnamese cuisine in Olmos Park.
This latest competitive entry in Vietnamese cuisine adds to the city’s multicultural growth with a studied menu of standards alongside Cajun crawfish preparations. The owners throw down the gauntlet with crisp, meaty egg rolls, devoid of the pale cabbage and standard shrimp you might expect and instead fat with pork…
Warm Vietnamese comfort food in a chill setting.
A tight menu of pho and banh mi at a stylishly wabi-sabi spot on St. Mary’s Strip.
Not much about the decor of this strip-center spot says “Vietnamese food,” but it’s cheery enough. The standard pho and crusty banh mi are better than most, but we swooned over the clay pot–style shrimp simmering in a spicy-sweet sauce. In fact, most of the chef’s recommendations are worth returning…

There's a lot more to this place than sandwiches.
