Simply finding another Vietnamese restaurant was akin to cheating and completely out of the question. This left us with only one option. Kevin and I would have to channel our inner Minh spirit animals and hope that we could even end up in the same galaxy as his superior culinary delights. What started as a simple idea quickly exploded into an elaborate operation. While Minh might make the tastiest bánh mì in all of Houston (seriously, the Heart Throb and Gluttonous Ellis deserve a spot in the Smithsonian), the only way to truly honor the legend would be with one of his epic Prix Fixe dinner menus being served to a large group of our friends (who just may happen to have gluten and soy allergies among them). And with that, Kevin and I were on a quest to make four courses and five dishes to help all our hearts ache just a little less.
