That is the Houston restaurant that, in line with Esquire, America can’t afford to lose

Esquire magazine added a Houston restaurant to its list of places it considers too important to lose to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Huynh, the family-run Vietnamese restaurant in Houston’s East Downtown Management District (also known as EaDO), was quoted in the December 29 article listing old and new, famous and obscure restaurants across the country.

“We also hope you toast to these places around the country – old and new, scruffy and chic – that we consider to be restaurants America cannot afford to lose. Because if we lose them, we lose who we are, ”wrote Esquire editor Jeff Gordinier.

The family-run Vietnamese restaurant, which has been in operation for over a decade, has been highly praised for its homemade Vietnamese food and regularly lands on the “Best of” lists. Spring rolls, rice platters, noodle bowls, stir-fries and other fresh traditional Vietnamese dishes anchor the menu.

“Visiting Houston without Vietnamese food would be like visiting Bologna and neglecting the pasta,” wrote Gordinier. “There’s always a wait for a seat at this family owned gem, but the tables spin quickly and anyone with a purpose in Houston will tell you you won’t find a more satisfying, delicious meal than the ginger for ten dollars , herbaceous duck salad, known as Goi Vit. “

Huynh at 912 St. Emanuel St. was open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, including the full menu, visit
