Located behind Ben Thanh Market, Nam Giao serves a small, but comprehensive menu of traditional dishes from the Hue region of Vietnam. Selections include such dishes as banh beo, a steamed rice flour cake filled with ground shrimp, and bun bo hue, a spicy beef noodle soup. The casual dining area is somewhat spartan; the walls are decorated with a few paintings, and each table features its own Asian-inspired light fixture and rock garden. Traditional Vietnamese music adds to the authentic atmosphere.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
