Vietnamese crepe (banh xeo) recommendations (South Bay)?

blorp | Nov 28, 2005 02:55 PM

Hello,

Banh xeo is one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes, and I was wondering if anyone would recommend places that whip up a good version?

I've tried several places (listed below), but I'm seeking eateries closer to home, like the Mountain View / Sunnyvale region.

* Anise Cafe (San Jose) - Minced tofu with shrimp, quite delicious. They chop up the salad herbs, rather than the more traditional plate of whole lettuce, mint, etc leaves.

* Citronelle (San Jose) - Alas, they only serve it on limited days (Mon-Wed or Mon-Thur, cannot remember specifically). But very yummy when it is available.

* Tao Cafe (San Francisco) - The add pea sprouts instead of mung bean sprouts, which is a lovely variation. Also includes tasty slices of chicken instead of pork. (I prefer chicken/shrimp/tofu over pork, but that's just me. :-)

Thanks in advance!
