There’s more to Vietnamese food than pho and spring rolls as these five restaurants make clear.

19 Market
This downtown San Jose restaurant brings high style and plush surroundings to traditional Vietnamese food.

Bun Bu Hue An Nam
The specialty of the house of this Story Road restaurant is bon bo Hue, pho’s spicier cousin.

My Khe Quan
My Khe Quan specializes in the food of central Vietnam, an underrepresented region of the country in the San Jose. The restaurant’s must-order is mi quang, an egg noodle soup made with wide noodles tinted yellow with turmeric.

Pho 69
Newcomer Pho 69 combines a industrial-chic decor with some great bowls of noodles and rice plates.

Vung Tau
The classic. Upscale and posh but always delicious, Vung Tau continues to impress with its encylopedic menu of traditional Vietnamese food.
