Hours: Lunch, Dinner (Mon.-Sat.)
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, Summer 2018)
