The arresting image of unctuous bone marrow sliding onto a bowl of pasta slicker than dudes sliding into your ex’s DMs after she takes your handle off her profile, serves as the essential intro to the deliciousness Nep Cafe in Fountain Valley, California is serving up.
What Nep Cafe excels at is the unique application of Vietnamese flavors to brunch classics. Diners are treated to a sumptuous choice of modern takes on signature brunch dishes and drinks like lump crab toast with uni, banh mi chao with bone marrow, and salted egg yolk Vietnamese iced coffee. We applaud a hefty brunch menu.
This is prime time indulging, as any proper brunch should be. Dishes are luscious without being lavish, yet the well done concepts on the menu offer an air of elevated, yet familiar satisfaction. It’s our favorite band performing all the new material at the beginning of the show, then closing strong and making you call for multiple encores with the classics.
Nep Cafe wows its guests with innovative takes and well-executed standards, which is always a winning formula to a successful restaurant.
