Cafe Nhan review image

Cafe Nhan


1606 W Passyunk Ave, Philadelphia
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The intersection of Passyunk and Snyder is an international restaurant row of sorts. There’s Little Morocco, Little Sicily Pizza, Mediterranean Cafe, and La Llorna Cantina. Lucky for us, there’s also Cafe Nhan, a cozy family-owned restaurant serving up Vietnamese comfort food–we love the rich oxtail pho and incredibly crispy and delicious chicken wings. But the bun bo hue dac biet (pho’s spicy cousin), packed with marinated beef brisket, pigs feet, steamed pork roll and housemade blood cubes is a must-try. The pungent flavors of star anise, fish sauce, annatto seeds and sichuan chili is balanced by the strong lemongrass broth. Order a limeade or Thai tea to keep your core temperature down.
