Go East, Young Man

In this month's issue of OffBeat magazine, we review Dong Phuong: Baker of Bread, Bastion Banh Mi, and Palace of Pork. If traveling to the beach this weekend, the detour down Chef Highway for springrolls and meat-filled pastries will ensure for a pleasant drive all the way to the panhandle. For the rest of us, the journey out East is worthwhile for no other reason than to satisfy a craving.

But beware the banh xeo, the crepe whose deliciousness is only matched by its difficulty in consumption. If the other diners are looking and laughing at you while you eat, then you're probably doing it right.
