As I mentioned in my first “Ethnic Side of Lincoln” blog post, Lincoln has quite a large Vietnamese population. The population is so sizable that in applying for a public library position, one of the application questions is if you speak Spanish, Russian, or Vietnamese.
The prevalence of Vietnamese food in Lincoln makes me super happy. The bulk of my Vietnamese food experiences have come from my friend Kathy's mother. Kathy's mom loves to feed me and I love to eat her cooking. When she found out I was moving to Lincoln, she was worried about where I was going to get Vietnamese food. So, I am pleased to report to her that there is lots of tasty Vietnamese food to be had here, and I am slowly but surely trying it all out.
The bulk of the Vietnamese restaurants are on North 27th Street. Within 1/2 a mile, there are about three Vietnamese restaurants, and that is not counting the Vietnamese/Chinese duos. Traveling north on 27th, you hit Pho Nyugen, Vung-Tau Deli, and Green Papaya. There is a fourth restaurant, Pho Factory, which is coming soon, making North 27th fairly pho centric.
Over the next week or so, I'll give you a three post series giving the pros and cons of each. This way, you’ll know where to go for the best Vietnamese and Pho in Lincoln.
