If you like tasty pho, French pastry and delicious coffee, Alesia will soon be one of your favorite spots for lunch.
Alesia serves delicious French Vietnamese dishes based on original homemade family recipes of the The Lye family.
The Lye, a Vietnamese man, relocated to France after the 1975 fall of Saigon. His two daughters Erika Ly-Hsu and. Sandra Ly-Flores grew up on his flavorful complex broth-based dishes. The two sisters enlisted the support of their husbands to join their venture as partners, added their father as a founding chef and their mother as dessert chef.
Our meal today is pictured below, Bun vermicelli noodles with herbs and lettuce topped with egg rolls and vegetable pho. The vegetable pho broth is as rich as the bone broth and has lots of baby bok choy and mushrooms.
Alesia is located at 7204 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL
