Clean lines and neutral hues form the sleek, modern interior of Pure Vietnamese Kitchen + Bar. With this scene as their backdrop, chefs artfully plate an array of Vietnamese cuisine. Read on to learn more about a few of the menu's standout dishes.
- Appetizer: Kick off meals with pork-belly rolls featuring a blend of vermicelli, cucumber, herbs, bean sprouts, garlic, and, of course, pork belly served with nước chấm dip.
- Baguette: For a twist on a classic Vietnamese sandwich, opt for the open-face banh mi with wok-tossed kalbi beef, a fried egg, pâté, cucumbers, cilantro, a mix of pickles, and sriracha aioli.
- Entree: The pan-seared duck breast is made with chili salt, Vietnamese-style curry, pan-seared confit potatoes, and chive oil to form a meal that's equally flavorful and filling.
- Dessert: Pure's thick, creamy coconut panna cotta looks almost too good to eat, thanks to its beautiful presentation, which includes garnishes of fresh blueberries and raspberries.
