Chefs Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare came back to Dallas after a motorcycle tour of Vietnam and did the gutsiest thing two white chicks could: they opened a restaurant based on the flavor profiles of north Vietnam. The banana flower salad—composed of thin strips of banana flower mixed with chicken, peanuts, carrots, daikon, cucumber, papaya, sesame seeds, fried shallots, and a fish sauce-based dressing—is absolutely breathtaking. Don't miss out on the bun cha, a rice noodle dish floating in rich, savory broth. It comes with grilled pork belly and soft meatballs on top.
