The diversity of flavor profiles available at Boston restaurants has expanded rapidly. Sa Pa Modern Vietnamese, located downtown on Bedford Street, is leading the way with its creative Vietnamese street food. We got in touch with Ky Nguyen, owner of Sa Pa, to discuss his restaurant’s commitment to their customers and how Boston has gone beyond pizza and burgers.
Q: How did you first get started with catering?
A: A customer called inquiring and we made it happen.
Q: What makes food and the restaurant industry in Boston unique?
A: I think Boston is slowly opening to new and different flavor profiles. For long time it was very narrow—pizza, burgers, etc. Now, especially with the food trucks, there’s a lot more culturally available.
Q: What’s your favorite dish at your restaurant?
A: Noodle bowl with BBQ Pork and Sa Pa Sauce.
Q: What do you predict for the future of Boston’s restaurant industry?
A: I think it will continue to thrive. There’s will be a more diversity not only culturally but also the brick-and-mortar concepts will be challenged.
Q: What makes your food unique?
A: It’s a blend of traditional Vietnamese flavors and other international flavors. For example, we use spices from all over the world—making food that’s truly unique.
