If you think “District 6” is an odd name for a Vietnamese restaurant, think again. This moniker honors the heritage of its owners, Hanh Duong and Vinh Thai, whose parents hail originally from the District 6 neighborhood in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, formerly known as Saigon. Ho Chi Minh City’s District 6 is part of the city’s Chinatown, loaded with Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants and bars as well as a huge flower market, Buddhist pagodas and craft stores offering iconic conical nón lá bamboo palm leaf hats.
