Cafe Hoang (CLOSED)

This low-key Chinatown eatery, a sibling to Argyle Street's Cafe Hoang, features Vietnamese and Thai fare. The menu, which mirrors the Uptown location, covers plenty of ground, offering appetizers and soups, noodle and rice dishes and entrees from both countries. You'll find standards such as egg rolls, tom yum soup, pho, pad Thai and chicken fried rice. But there are more adventurous options too; including spicy catfish simmered in a clay pot, soft shell crab with tamarind sauce and crispy-fried whole red snapper with sweet and sour fish sauce. Not familiar with Southeast Asian staples? Food photos (with corresponding menu numbers) are mounted on the storefront's windows, in the entryway and on the walls inside to help you make a decision. Cafe Hoang is BYOB.
