Round red lanterns floating above the street guide visitors to the sidewalk patio of this Vietnamese café in Chinatown’s Central Plaza. A traditional pagoda-inspired structure on the outside, the restaurant features a more contemporary interior with concrete floors, local artwork, and a separate loft space. The cuisine is straightforward authentic Vietnamese cuisine, such as spring rolls with peanut sauce, lemongrass beef vermicelli, chicken pho, and rice noodle soup. Diners also rave about the Asian beer and wine selection, as well as the strong Vietnamese coffee.

Insider Tip:

For an unique drinking experience, order the Iichiko Seirin, a clean, crisp Japanese distilled spirit made with barley and served with half a grapefruit to squeeze into the glass.
