I am a huge fan of all different types of ethnic food, but one of my absolute favorites is Vietnamese and a new Vietnamese Restaurant just recently opened in Berry Hill. Come on Franklin that’s about 15 minutes away.
Vui’s s Kitchen is the real deal and you’ve got to go, especially if you crave fresh ingredients packed with flavor. You might know Vui Hunt from The Juice Bar, which is right next door. She and her husband, John are dedicated to making healthy taste great and the restaurant is a testimony to their philosophy.
They’ve only been open a short time and by the looks of the crowd coming through the door on a Thursday evening around 5:30pm, Vui’s Kitchen is already a huge success.
I wanted to try everything on the menu, but clearly that would have been obnoxious. Then I couldn’t decide so I asked for recommendations. I’m pretty sure everything tastes amazing.
We began with the summer rolls. I swear I could eat these every day of my life. They’re light, healthy and the peanut sauce is possibly the best I’ve eaten.
I’ve never tasted a Bánh Mì sandwich, but it was highly recommended so I went for it. This is like a party in your mouth. The layering of flavors is so good that you won’t want to stop eating. It’s a super soft French baguette, arugula, cucumber, pickled daikon & carrots, cilantro, jalapeño, house-made pâté and fresh mayo. We had ours with lemongrass chicken that was beyond tender, but you can also order it with lemongrass pork or beef or friend eggs. Seriously…mouth-watering delicious.
Because everything is made to order, you can customize your sandwich.
We had to try the Pho or it wouldn’t have been a real visit to a Vietnamese restaurant and I’m so glad we did.
The Menu & Ordering
My recommendation is go with some friends and order different items from the menu so you can taste everything. You’ll find small bites (soups, salads and rolls) and main courses like sandwiches, pho soups, rice and noodle bowls along with large salads. Noodles are definitely in my plan for the next visit.
You won’t find any oily stir-fry or frozen fried food. Actually you won’t find anything fried, but you will find lots of fresh produce, herbs and peppers grown on site.
A wide assortment of beverages is available plus beer and wine.
You order at the counter and if you’re in doubt, ask anyone to help you. You won’t be led astray. Take a seat inside or on one of the patios and when your order is ready, they’ll come and find you.
