Vietnamese cuisine is a staple of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, whose origins here in East Biloxi date 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, the trendy Viet-Cajun fusion, blending gulf coast seafood with traditional Vietnamese flavors, has flourished here with new restaurants offering a variety of seafood boiled with a twist.

We asked people in southern Mississippi to tell us about their favorite Vietnamese restaurants and dishes when they dine at the restaurant.

Almost 100 people took our survey and told us what places they like, what they order and why they return there again and again. Did we miss something? Let us know!

Phở reigns supreme

Herald of the Sun journalist Isabelle Taft, which covers the Vietnamese coastal community, picked out some of their favorite dishes and asked readers which ones would be most interested in trying or ordering. An overwhelming number of southern Mississippians have chosen pho as their favorite restaurant dish.

Phở, a noodle soup usually made with beef or some other protein, cooked with spices and topped with herbs, is probably the most famous Vietnamese dish in the world.

Here are Isabelle’s other two favorite dishes:

  • Bún thịt nÆ°á»›ng: 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 from rice flour that derives its yellow tint from turmeric powder. Stuffings vary but often include pork, shrimp, and mung beans, and the dish is typically served with fresh mint, basil, and other herbs.
