It started as pop-up in a hallway at an office building in downtown Miami a few years ago and boy did Phuc Yea make an impression. And not just because of the name (pronounced fook, which means blessings and prosperity in Vietnamese) but because they were doing food like nobody else in town. Now we’re impressed again with news of the restaurant’s permanent location in Miami’s Mimo neighborhood.
The menu is “Viet-Cajun”. I’m still not clear on what that is exactly but what is clear is that everything we had was delicious! The noodles and rolls are great. Our fave, the PY Noodles ($10) in garlic butter, oyster sauce and Parmesan cheese. Don’t know how something so simple can taste so good. Main dish offerings include seafood, curries, tofu, and crispy duck to name just a few but the star of the show has to be the Cajun Wok. It’s a Cajun boil style pot with veggies and sausage tossed with the protein and sauce of your choice.
Phuc Yea, we’re glad you’re back and here to stay!
