Bamboo and faded-photo ambience give this great Vietnamese spot an air of romance. The kitchen turns out tasty little surprises like tom cuon, rice-paper rolls stuffed with savory grilled prawns, paired with an addictive peanut sauce. Fans of spicy foods should consider the mixao, stir-fried noodles with fiery-sour chili-lime sauce. Warm coconut-banana bread may sound heavy for a summer dish, but it"s a great sweet nibble to have with Vietnamese coffee.
