Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Roostar (formerly Vietnam Poblano) creates authentic, custom prepared banh mi sandwiches, rice and noodle dishes, wings, and specialty coffees-served in a diverse, colorful and festive environment. Banh mi (pronounced "bun-me", the Vietnamese word for bread) is a sandwich prepared with a fusion of Vietnamese and French flavors. Roostar specializes in handcrafted Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches in Houston's Spring Branch neighborhood. In Vietnam, banh mi is served curbside by street vendors from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, amidst the urban blur of scooters, diners and passers-by.

Very small. This is a casual place with a lot of business. The menu is fairly small but the food is really good.
