Having already offered up some quality restaurant options for anyone craving Chinese or Thai, it seemed appropriate to once again turn our attention back to Asian cuisine.

Broward-Palm Beach

Pho 78

Walking into a Vietnamese restaurant can be intimidating. You’re probably there for a bowl of pho, the delectable rice noodle soup that is the country’s national dish, but what type of pho should you get? So many restaurants prepare pho so many different ways… even if you’ve had it before…More >>

Mai’s Vietnamese Restaurant

How do we love Mai’s? Let us count the burn scars on the roofs of our mouths from all the times we couldn’t wait to dig into our chicken clay pot because it smelled too damn yummy. Yeah, we’re stupid that way, especially when it comes to Mai’s fiery baked blend of vermicelli noodles, black…More >>

Thien An has all of the traditional cuts of beef, steak, brisket, flank steak…More >>

Sung Son Vietnamese Bistro

More than just the eighth wonder of the world, the all-you-can-eat buffet is as American as apple pie and as easy to come by as ranch dressing.
