List of top Vietnamese restaurants in Biloxi, MS Gulf Coast

title=

Noah’s Seafood & Noodles, Kim Long, Le Bakery and VK Noodle House are four of the best Vietnamese restaurants on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, according to locals.

Sun Herald staff

Vietnamese cuisine is a Mississippi Gulf Coast staple, with origins here in East Biloxi dating back to the aftermath of the Vietnam War.

Over the past four decades, several restaurants have opened in Biloxi, with local favorites popping up in Long Beach, Gulfport, D’Iberville and Ocean Springs.

More recently, trendy Viet-Cajun fusion, blending Gulf Coast seafood with traditional Vietnamese flavors, has expanded here with new restaurants offering a variety of boiled seafood with a twist.

We asked South Mississippi residents to tell us their favorite Vietnamese restaurants and dishes when dining out.

Nearly 100 people responded to our survey and told us which spots they love, what they order and why they go back again and again. Did we miss something? Let us know!

Phở reigns supreme

Sun Herald reporter Isabelle Taft, who covers the Vietnamese community on the Coast, picked some of her favorite dishes and asked readers which they’d be most interested in trying or ordering. An overwhelming number of South Mississippians selected phở as the dish they like to eat when dining out.

Phở, a noodle soup usually made with beef or another protein, cooked with spices and garnished with herbs, is likely the best-known Vietnamese dish around the world.

These are Isabelle’s other two favorite dishes:

  • Bún thịt nướng: Cold rice vermicelli noodles served with grilled pork, fresh herbs like mint and basil, and spring rolls. Usually dressed with fish sauce and chopped peanuts.
  • Bánh xèo: A fried pancake made of rice flour that gets its yellow hue from turmeric powder. Stuffings vary but often include pork, prawns and mung beans, and the dish is usually served with fresh mint, basil and other herbs.
