Les Ba’get gourmet food truck has been promoted. Thanks to loyal followers of their upscale Vietnamese cuisine, husband and wife team Cat Huynh and Angie Dang have permanently parked their food truck to make way for their first cafe, Les Ba'get Vietnamese Cafe.
The cozy 40-50 seat space, with wood-lined walls and a poster of Huynh’s mother, creates an inviting neighborhood feel. But diners will feel more like family once they've experienced the thoughtful and carefully-crafted dishes. Each plate is prepared with the purpose of proving Vietnamese cuisine is more than cheap fast food.
Here, ingredients are carefully sourced and meals are artfully plated. Start with an item from the all-day breakfast menu like the Vietnamese Chicken & Waffle, made with a Pandan coconut milk Belgium waffle and fish sauce marinated fried chicken w/ green tea syrup. Or, take a bite of the 24-hour sous vide pork belly banh mi, topped with an egg and beautifully presented in a wooden box.
For drinks, the cafe offers a selection of local craft beer like Karbach and Saint Arnold's, homemade soy milk, fresh coconut juice, teas, and Vietnamese coffee and iced coffee made from locally roasted beans. Currently the cafe also allows BYOB wine with no corkage fee.
