  • Ben Thanh Restaurant


    Cuisine: Asian, Vietnamese
    Features: Takeout

    Pinellas Park: 4200 62nd Ave. N, Pinellas Park, 33781

    Ben Thanh is the biggest market in Ho Chi Minh City, a beloved institution that over centuries has been destroyed, relocated, reborn and renovated. Pinellas Park's Ben Thanh is a little like that. The Vietnamese restaurant opened in 1994 on 34th Street N, but closed in 2002 when chef/owner Susan Nguyen's husband had a stroke. Ben Thanh has returned, popping up on 62nd Avenue N in an unassuming strip mall. It's a short menu with a refined array of soups pho and egg noodle, vermicelli bowls, soothing porridges, stir-fries and complicated self-roll entrees. Ben Thanh does an admirable job with the familiar, the magical spicy-soothing properties of rare beef pho, or tiny fried eggrolls on a bed of cold vermicelli kicked up with nuoc cham.

  • Cajun Cafe On the Bayou


    Features: Beach/Waterfront, Dance club, Kid-friendly, Live music, Outdoor seating

    Pinellas Park: 8101 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park, 33781

    This Cajun/Zydeco restaurant and bar has an outdoor stage and deck overlooking Cross Bayou. Plus you'll find a 25-by-42-foot cypress dance floor, perfect for two-stepping to the live music that's often scheduled there. Dance lessons are also given at some events. And the food? Let's just say that if you love crawfish, you'll love this place. The cafe cooks all of its food from scratch -- including its whiskey bread pudding. Each year, the Cafe holds its own Mardi Gras celebration in February and a crawfish festival in April. If you can't get to New Orleans, this is a great substitute for some Cajun flavor.
