Midtown Houston: Little Saigon is now Little Manhattan

The Vietnamese community has created a thriving center for Vietnamese-owned businesses in Midtown, affectionately (and now officially) called "Little Saigon" a district characterized by street signs displayed in Vietnamese. Cali Sandwich, Van Loc and Givral’s Sandwiches are just a few of the great examples of Vietnamese cuisine to be had in Houston. Vietnamese Catholic convents and Buddhist shrines dot the neighborhood, and many stores are named in Vietnamese.

The neighborhood has undergone a radical transformation in the last two years, with mixed-use development creating pockets of urban living rarely seen in Houston. This has been complementary to the upscale clubs and restaurants which have opened here recently and excelled at making Midtown a destination for young professionals.
