Hai Hai … means two two in Vietnamese 

There’s nothing low-key about Hai Hai, although it is nestled in a little area in Northeast Mpls that I rarely frequent.

Walking in was reminiscent of a restaurant featured in a travel magazine. A place I’m pretty sure was so eye catching that I folded the page for quick and easy reference.

I immediately scoured the menu for vegan options and asked a few questions before confirming my order.

“I’ll have the fried potatoes and the Balinese cauliflower.”

Great choice😉

Bold flavors, amazing textures, pungent and fresh herbs happily satisfied my pallet. My mouth was doing a happy dance and I swear they were playing trap music 👌🏽.
