Along with some great museums and a few Knowles sisters, Houston is home to some of the best Vietnamese food in the country. Everyone has their go-to place, but Huynh is one of our favorites. Located just east of downtown, it’s a great choice for lunch when you’re here for a convention or need to escape the office for an “off-site meeting.” The menu is huge, but the banh cuon, vermicelli bowls, and duck salad should all be part of your supposed brainstorm session.
