The legacy of Kim Son restaurants owes its origins to the memory of its matriarch, Kim Su Tran. When "Mama La" and her husband fled Vietnam in 1980, she brought with her more than 250 recipes, each stowed safely in her mind. She also brought her seven children, four of which—Tan, Tri, Tony, and Tao—now watch over the business and coveted family recipes. Among their shared vision is Kim Son Cafe, which breaks from its predecessors by way of a simplified menu and the inclusion of sushi. Though the menu is simpler, the flavors are just as complex, showcasing ingredient orchestration in dishes such as coconut curry shrimp wound up in strands of spinach linguini. The menu even boasts a Vietnamese take on fajitas, giving guests rice paper with which to wrap marinated meats and veggies or write love letters to their mouths.

Culinary connoisseurs May and Eddie Chan whip up their pan-Asian and Hunan-styled eats in a chic eatery adorned with modern lines, exposed brick, and exotic floral arrangements. Midday grazers can settle into the sleek dining room for lunch before slapping on a hardhat and constructing their meal from two courses served with brown, white, or fried rice. Kick off gastronomical jaunts with a choice of appetizer, including fried cheese wontons, a crispy Buddha egg roll, and miso tofu soup. Then pair starters with comestible choices such as sesame-crusted chicken or chinatown roast duck. Hot-tempered tongues are cooled off with a vietnamese iced coffee before getting riled up once more with pearl jasmine tea.

During dinner, diners can warm up for a marathon meal with wonton-dumpling soup. Giant plates of honey-walnut shrimp and grilled teriyaki salmon placate more carnivorous appetites and can be sacrificed to the family of hungry bears prowling the restaurant. Kick off a mouth party with beef chow fun or inspire taste buds to hit the flavor dance floor with Asian BBQ baby-back ribs and steamed Chinese broccoli in oyster sauce.
