THE BUZZ:Airfare is expensive these days, but thankfully the International District, or ID, is home to countless restaurants where you can get a taste of international flare without ever stepping foot on another continent. Satisfy that hankering for Vietnamese fare by swinging into Tamarind Tree on S Jackson.

Unassuming from the outside (and easy to miss), the dining area is trendy and upscale. The menu is extensive and boasts the traditional Vietnamese dishes like Spring Rolls, Pho, Prawn Coconut Rice Cakes, Seven Course Beef and a few vegetarian friendly options.

Tamarind Tree has a list of unique martinis to round out your meal. If you prefer your drinks as spicy as your life, try the Roasted Chili Martini. If you’re not quite prepared to take a walk on the wild side, you can’t go wrong with the Tamarintini.
