Nam Hua



You feel you’re among family at Nam Hua. The name means “fifth daughter” (a reference to the owner); tchotchkes adorn the register. People come here for the lunch buffet or for the vast menu of homey, hard-to-find, rustic Vietnamese dishes. But banh xeo—crispy, bright yellow crêpes redolent with coconut milk and stuffed with grilled pork, shrimp, and bean sprouts—are the specialty at this humble, inviting restaurant. Wrap with herbs in lettuce leaves and dip in some of the most balanced fish sauce in town. Don’t miss the refreshing salty limeade (chanh muoi), fizzy salted plum drink, or tubs of food in fridges and on counters that you can take home.
