912 St. Emanuel Houston, TX 77003 | East End | 713-224-8964

Location Description:

Formerly Pho Huynh, Huynh is a family-run establishment that has been serving homestyle Vietnamese cuisine in the East End for more than ten years. The warm, modern interior is much more elegant than the restaurant's nondescript strip-mall exterior suggests. Generous portions and a plethora of familiar Vietnamese dining options make this place a popular lunch and dinner destination. There are plenty of vegetarian options, such as Coconut Curry Tofu, as well as duck, chicken, beef, and seafood dishes available. The Phoenix Chicken - a sort of southeast Asian version of fried chicken - is a favorite.
