Great Vietnamese in Omaha

I recently spent a couple of days in Omaha and had dinner at one of the best Vietnamese restaurant's ever. The place is named "Saigon Surface". In the downtown area near the Old Market. Not really sure what's up the the name - what "surface" means. Upscale compared with the Vietnamese places I visit in St. Louis. We let the waiter recommend 4 different meals - had the pineapple fried rice (served in a hollowed out pineapple, but not overly sweet), woked crispy noodle, shaken beef and crispy prawns. Not as light as the meals I get in St. Louis, but all incredibly good. Dessert of mango sweet rice was excellent. Very nice interior design - wouldn't typically see that in St. Louis. Strangely, almost empty for a Saturday night with the College World Series in town. Wonderful experience. This place should be packed. Don't miss if you visit Omaha.
