At her new spot, Ly-Hear Lo-Teyssandier gets straight to the point: “We’re a Southeast Asian creperie!” she calls out from the windowed kitchenette of her café Beng Beng, equipped with a pale green facade, Formica barstools and metal trays… What will you find on the menu? Three little gems: Vietnamese bánh xèo, an extra crispy rice flour, coconut milk and turmeric crepe filled with ground pork, shrimp, salad, cucumber, soybeans, mint and basil – which you roll up and dip into quality nuoc-mâm sauce; exquisite flaky Malaysian roti with wheat and ghee (clarified butter), stuffed with nem nuong (Vietnamese pork sausage), pickled carrots and cucumber, plus fresh cilantro and scallions; and jian bing, a Chinese crepe made with mung beans, rice flour and tapioca, pimped out with beaten egg, satay chicken, lettuce and pickled vegetables. And to go with all that, six vegetarian bánh khot (tiny bánh xèo), then an incredible pandan flan. // James Patisson

FEELING THIRSTY? Sweet homemade pandan-coconut syrup water (€3.50), excellent cà phê sua dá (Vietnamese coffee made with sweetened condensed milk, served hot or cold, €5) or BapBap beers (€5).
PRICE: Combos 12€ (crepe + drink) or €15 (with a side or dessert).
