Off the beaten path, but totally worth getting to. This bustling counter-service restaurant (serving mainly vegan dishes) offers hearty Vietnamese-inspired entrees, like the Tropical Rainstorm Bowl (rice noodles, shredded beancurd, greens, cuke, pickled carrot/daikon, mung beans, crispy shallots, mint, coconut flakes with creamy toasted coconut sauce & lemon vegan fish sauce). Try the desserts, too! These guys are also focused on reducing plastic waste, so place a to-go order and bring your own dish.
