Sure things on the extensive menu include the Vietnamese crispy pork-and-shrimp pancake with fresh herbs, the spicy chicken rice plate, and the crispy prawns served atop a sort of onion-ginger salad.  Additional popular dishes include shrimp fried rice, lemon-beef salad with minced peanuts, and a cubed beef rice plate that is a version of shaken beef (bo luc lac).  Rice plates and vermicelli bowls are generally good, as are shrimp dishes and Vietnamese sandwiches.  Drinks include a good Thai iced tea, iced coffee, and boba smoothies.
