Vietnam Café

Before working at Vietnam Café, owner Thanh Son did not know anything about running a restaurant. He didn’t know how to cook or the ins and outs of a restaurant business. In 1992, he immigrated to America and became a simple cook for a fast food Chinese restaurant. In 2001, he and his wife, Huong Lam, bought the restaurant and changed the name to Vietnam Café. The original owner taught him how to cook, and Son believed he could satisfy customers’ needs. He was rights. Currently, the restaurant has no problem attracting large crowds of customers no matter the weather, and according to The Pitch Magazine, the restaurant has the ‘Best Vietnamese Food’ in town. Son uses the best quality ingredients in each dish.
