Chef and owner of Saigon Catering Anh Toan Ho runs this take-out Vietnamese shop on the outreaches of Mt. P. with pho, rice dishes, and salads on the menu.
A takeout-centric restaurant from chef/owner Anh Toan Ho, Mì Xào brings traditional Vietnamese cooking to the northern edge of Mt. Pleasant. The compact menu includes noodle soups, rice dishes, and salads along with cool summer rolls and tender steamed dumplings. The beef pho brims with savory spices while the tom yum kung presents big, flavorful shrimp in a lime-tinged sweet and sour broth. Daily specials offer a sampling of classic dishes from across Asia, too, like pad thai, pancit, and Korean barbecue. For the northern ’burbs, it’s a much-needed infusion of fresh, interesting flavors and a great option for a quick, affordable meal. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
thebestingolf says... This place rocks. Tucked away in a little shopping center on the 41 - 17 corner, it's not easy to find but worth it. Chef Toan (pronounced Twan) always has a smile on his face and couldn't be nicer. He'll sit with you if he's not too busy and talk food. The salads are awesome and the Pho is great on a cold day. ★★★★★
