Au Petit Cafe – Vancouver

January 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Popular but small local Vietnamese restaurant on Main Street which also closes pretty early – 7pm – or very early if you compare it relative to other Asian restaurants.

October 28th, 2009 · No Comments

Super busy Vietnamese restaurant in the trendy Ferry building on Embarcadero. If you want to eat at the restaurant, definitely make reservations. Alternatively, you can look for a seat at the busy bar where they serve the restaurant menu or take a seat in the lounge where an appetizer menu is served. Walked in at […]
