The Blind Goat

5-Course Modern Viet-Texan Tasting Event

Opened in 2019 in Bravery Chef Hall and, as of this past February, relocated to its spanking new quarters in Spring Branch, this superb Vietnamese eatery captures the full artistry of Founding Chef Christine Ha, best known for being the blind winner of “MasterChef” with Gordon Ramsay in 2012 and a perennial nominee for James Beard's Award "Best Chef" and "Outstanding Chef". The American-born daughter of Vietnamese refugees, Chef Ha began The Blind Goat as a 400-square-foot station inside a food hall. That didn’t stop the James Beard Foundation however from naming it a Semi-Finalist for "Best New Restaurant in America"! Diners delight in Chef Ma’s creations, like puffed rice noodles with tofu, bang bang shrimp, coconut mussels, Texas BBQ brisket fried rice, and so much more. And let’s not forget her epic “MasterChef” dessert: rubbish apple pie, with Vietnamese spices like star anise, lemongrass, and ginger - and a scoop of Cosmic Ice Cream’s vanilla bean ice cream drizzled with fish sauce caramel, to top it all off. Need we say more?
