This intimate Asian eatery, previously known as Tao, specializes in Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine in a simple, dimly-lit space where diners are encouraged to graffiti the walls with markers. The kitchen executes handmade, perfectly textured tofu, which is used to create a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes, including spring rolls, pho, and curries. The mango chicken rice and the red snapper rice pot are popular choices and can be customized, like all the entrees, along a "spicy scale" that goes from one to 10. Complimentary tofu salad and ice cream dessert rounds out the experience.
