Hey everyone, I'm currently a resident of Baltimore but possibly relocating to Phoenix. I would like to get an idea of good restaurants for Vietnamese, sushi, and seafood.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Plenty in all three categories, but the metro area is large. Can you specificy the part of town you are possibly relocating to?

      Not a clue honestly. This whole thing was just recently sprung on me.

      Phoenix is gaining a reputation for Vietnamese food via mostly small mom and pop places. Cyclo was the first to gain attention but others, including Viet Kitchen in north Phoenix are good. I still like Lee's Sandwiches for Vietnamese style sandwiches on freshly baked baquettes. Lot's of sushi places and many of them are just plain weird. Seafood? Some but not what you're used to in Baltimore. Now, if you like real Mexican Phoenix is going through an authentic Mexican growth spurt. If you don't like real Mexican I would suggest you either learn to or stay in Baltimore! Just kidding but I travel alot and Phoenix has become a top notch food city in the past 10 years. You'll have no trouble finding good food.

        Baltimore actually has a great Mexican neighborhood with some pretty good stuff just east of Little Italy. Nowhere near the scale of here, to be sure, but more than you probably think.
