Start with the Shady Blonde sake punch. effervescent grapefruit and thyme, this punch is a perfect way to cool down on the patio. If you are looking for something with more of a kick, try the Red Dragon for spice.
The Shrimp and Avocado spring rolls are a crowd pleaser and something everyone can agree on. The tofu spring rolls are a great options as well. The white vinegar and spicy green sauce are my favorite ways to top these spring rolls.
The Beef Short Rib Bun is one of my favorites on the menu! I love to order this cold noodle salad during the steamy hot summers. Packed with tons of fresh veggies and herbs, this is lovely for lunch.
The Chicken Meatball Pho is pipping hot and ready for slurping. I like to add bok choy to mine! This is definitely large enough to share… or maybe not 😉
These spicy noodles are what keep me coming back again and again. The Singapore Noodles are also served on the breakfast menu topped with fried eggs. This is the stuff dreams are made of.
Spicy, golden noodles, who knew they would be what I crave every Sunday morning!?!
I like to end my meal at Elizabeth Street Cafe with a Vietnamese coffee. You can get this over ice for the hot days.
Creamy, delicious goodness!
