Just on the edge of the University of Utah, this popular Vietnamese goto offers dishes you might not find on other menus around town. Coconut curry mussels, steak vietnamienne, fried rice with basil and garlic – a particular favorite of mine. And of course you will find lots of traditional Vietnamese cuisine on offer too, including a dash of Chinese dishes as well.
