    Smoked Salmon and Eggs was #3 on Gustavo's Top 100 Dishes! Pair this ethereal breakfast not with Champagne, but a cup of chef Dee Nguyen's outstanding Vietnamese iced coffee, and be transported.

    Must have: the French toast creme brûlée! Heaven in the form of breakfast <3

  • FemGoldDigger on 12/18/11

    Highlights include: Vietnamese iced coffee, short ribs, corned beef, mac n cheese and creme brulee french toast. Delish!

  • Bryant T. on 06/30/13

    Delicious food! A hidden gem in Laguna Hills, the Mac and Cheese and the French Toast Creme Brûlée are my favorites! Definitely a must try!
