Fodor's Expert Review Hy-Vong Vietnamese Cuisine

$$ Little Havana Vietnamese Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Florida's best Vietnamese food in the heart of Little Havana? It may sound bizarre, but Hy-Vong will have you rethinking your drive to Calle Ocho for Cuban cuisine. In fact, people are willing to wait on the sidewalk for hours to sample the delights at this tiny restaurant, like cha gio (Vietnamese spring rolls), fish panfried with mango or with nuoc man (a garlic-lime fish sauce), not to mention the pork thit kho (caramelized braised pork) stewed in coconut milk. Beer-savvy proprietors Kathy Manning and Tung Nguyen serve a half dozen top brews (Double Grimbergen, Peroni, and Spaten, among them) to further inoculate the experience from the ordinary—well, as ordinary as a Vietnamese restaurant on Calle Ocho can be. Arrive early to avoid long waits.
