Sustainable Dining: How SOMI Sources Local Ingredients for Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine

At SOMI, we believe that the essence of authentic Vietnamese cuisine lies not only in the traditional recipes passed down through generations but also in the quality of the ingredients used. We are passionate about food, and our mission is to source local ingredients from local producers. This commitment to sustainability and local sourcing is what sets us apart and allows us to provide our guests with high-quality food, made by passionate chefs.

Local Sourcing: A Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

Our commitment to local sourcing is twofold. Firstly, it allows us to ensure the quality of our ingredients. By sourcing locally, we can build relationships with our suppliers and gain a better understanding of their farming practices. This allows us to ensure that the ingredients we use are fresh, high-quality, and grown in a way that aligns with our commitment to sustainability.

Secondly, local sourcing reduces our environmental impact. By sourcing ingredients locally, we reduce the distance that food travels from the farm to our restaurant, thereby reducing our carbon footprint. This is an essential part of our commitment to sustainability and our desire to contribute to a healthier planet.

From Farm to Table: The Journey of Our Ingredients

The journey of our ingredients begins in the local farms around Salt Lake City. We work closely with these farms, ensuring that they share our commitment to sustainable farming practices. Once harvested, these ingredients make a short journey to our restaurant, where they are transformed into the delicious dishes on our menu.

Our menu is a testament to the diversity and richness of Vietnamese cuisine. From Pho to Vermicelli, we offer a wide selection of traditional Asian dishes. And because we source locally, we can adapt our menu based on the season and availability of ingredients, ensuring that our dishes are always fresh and seasonal.

The SOMI Difference: Taste the Authenticity

At SOMI, we believe that our commitment to local sourcing and sustainability makes a difference that you can taste. Our dishes are not only authentic and delicious but also a reflection of our commitment to our community and the environment. By dining at SOMI, you are not only enjoying a delicious meal but also supporting local farmers and contributing to a more sustainable food system.
