You could easily walk by this resto-pub located in The Village, if it wasn’t for the red light sign outside. And that would be a real shame. Once you step inside, you are automatically seduced by how friendly the staff is and how eager they are to make sure you enjoy your experience. They serve uber tasty Vietnamese street food, a change from the Pho soups we usually associated with this type of cuisine. You absolutly have to try their papaya salade served in a plastic bag just like they serve in the streets of Vietnam.
