Chef and owner Huang Nguyen brings her authentic family recipes to 399 Vietnamese Kitchen, expected to open in late July at The Market Place. Expect generous bowls of pho, with broths flavored by hours of building and simmering. Crystal clear but layered with nuance, the intricate broth process was passed on to Nguyen by watching her parents prepare traditional dishes in the kitchen of their Saigon home with the address 399.
A menu of Vietnamese cuisine features familiar dishes – low and slow pho, vibrant spring rolls and authentic banh mi. What sets the cafe apart is its allegiance to heirloom recipes and the gentle flair of homestyle cooking. Add beverages and delicate desserts for a one-of-a-kind feast.
The cheerful 56-seat space also offers patio dining under the shade of tall palms and lemon yellow umbrellas. Look for 399 Vietnamese Kitchen near Class 302 Tea Cafe and J San Ramen.
