The acclaimed modern Vietnamese restaurant from chefs Christine Ha (a.k.a. “the blind cook” and winner of “MasterChef” season three) and Tony J. Nguyen (formerly of Saigon House) turned one this year, a momentous milestone considering the spot opened smack dab in the middle of a pandemic. To celebrate this special feat, the Xin Chao team is throwing a birthday bash on November 7, complete with a lion dance, giveaway, raffles, games, and more importantly, a tasting menu consisting of current favorite dishes and upcoming offerings.
Can’t make it to the party? Pop in any other day to indulge on signature items like the super-crispy, incredibly moist Nguyen-er Nguyen-er chicken dinner or the flavor-packed smoked beef rib flat rice noodles — a delightful play on Cantonese beef chow fun, served here with two 44 Farms Texas beef ribs that have been smoked in-house to perfection.
