Bo luc lac: "shaking beef"

Price Scale

For over a decade, Annie Huynh’s family-run Vietnamese eatery has served as a welcome constant as old Chinatown transitions into the new EaDo. At both lunch and dinnertime, expect a short wait—it’s worth it for the chargrilled pork wrapped in silky rice paper (banh uot thit nuong), the chewy-crispy wok-fried noodles (hu tieu) and a mesmerizing duck soup with fermented bamboo (bun mang vit) that’s unlike any other you’ll find in Houston.
