Ngon Vietnamese Bistro Restaurant Review

: Hai Truong has converted his family's longtime Caravelle restaurant into Ngon. Pronounced "nong," it's Vietnamese for “delicious.” It's a fitting name, because Truong does notable things with premium, Minnesota-raised ingredients (chicken, beef, duck, pork). Don't miss the house-made wild boar sausage, the braised pork belly, the pho, the crispy rabbit dumplings, the rib-eye finished with a lemon grass demi-glace or the rice noodle salad tossed with braised oxtail. The chic French colonial setting (designed by Truong's spouse, Jessica) is another plus.
