OC Weekly's Description

This Vietnamese place is better-suited for Little Saigon as part of
its 1.5 generation wave of restaurants: immigrant parents who take care of
the cooking, assimilated kids who ensure the décor is immaculate, and prices
slightly higher than the competition because of better ingredients. The best
dish is also one of the few truly French-Vietnamese hybrids: a ratatouille
crepe. Don't expect something elongated; instead, out comes something more
approximate to a bánh xèo, the Vietnamese-style half-pancake, half-omelet,
folded in half like a quesadilla.
