Cafaux TH

Vacationing Cafe TH owner Minh seen here enjoying a Bananas Foster Cookie
This past week, the unthinkable happened. Superstar Cafe TH owner/world's nicest man, Minh Nguyen, decided it was time for a much needed vacation. Immediately, my circle of friends fell into a wicked tailspin. How were we supposed to spend our Thursday night? Where would we quell our stomachs' insatiable desires for the best Vietnamese fusion food and atmosphere out there?

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.

Cafaux TH Prix Fixe Menu

Báhn Bột Chiên- Cantonese-styled fried eggs over pickled radish, rice flour cakes and potatoes served the "Trey Way" with char-grilled pork belly
