Chef Peja Krstic has made this Lakewood eatery a Dallas favorite, known for its chic and innovative riffs on Vietnamese dishes. Dig into grilled duck hearts served with green papaya salad, and pay close attention to the chef’s specials — they’re pretty much always worth trying. Pro-tip: order the garlic noodles, a side dish that’s earned a cult following.

A relative newcomer to DFW’s Vietnamese cuisine scene, this Cedars sandwich shop is already one of the city’s best banh mi destinations. The Vietnamese sausage and lemongrass pork are excellent, as is the ginger tofu. Wash it all down with a lychee lemongrass tea or guava lemonade smoothie.
