Thai, Malaysian, and Vietnamese cuisine is sewn throughout this city, centering in Chinatown and has gained popularity as more Americans are trying out different cuisines. The Chinatown area has a wide variety of authentic Southeast Asian stores and restaurants, dispersed amongst the Chinese establishments.

Things to look out for:

  • Malaysian Curry with Thin Bread - It's great as an appetizer!
  • Vietnamese Sandwich - This has gotten really popular and trendy. Using a french baguette, it uses a lot of meat, carrots, scallions, and other vegetables with a sauce. Definitely worth a try.
  • Thai Pad Thai - A common but tasty noodle dish that is slightly sweet and incorporates Southeast Asian flavors such as lemongrass, lime, and peashoots.
  • Vietnamese Pho - This is soup noodles where you are given meat, peashoots, cilantro, and lime on a separate plate to put into pho yourself. This is a great dish to order on a cold winter day.
