Vietnamese is one of my favourite cuisines. It's light, healthy and delicious but almost impossible to find in New York. Good ones that is. Omai is so far the best taste I've found in New York, they use higher quality ingredients and deliver a relaxing dinning experience in their zen-like space in Chelsea. Every place I've worked on the west side I make it a point to eat Omai at least twice a week. The Omai Salad (pictured here) is my favourite, it's like the ultimate "Bun", with grilled pork, charbroiled jumbo shrimp and crispy spring rolls. Their beef pho is also incredible, it's made with oxtail broth which gives it a nice rich flavour, again probably the best I've had in New York.
