DETAILS

Cay da translates as banyan tree in Vietnamese, a tree that is sacred in Hinduism (its lengthy branches symbolize eternal life) and serves as a primitive home for Robinson Crusoe in Daniel Defoe's novel. Luckily, it also refers to a place sacred for Vietnamese cuisine lovers in Boca Raton that's as comfortable as any home with its cozy dining room. Chef Gai Duong brings a family feel to her establishment with the assistance of her sons and daughters in the front and back of the restaurant. Begin with one of the myriad memorable soups such as the hot and sour shrimp or Cay Da's rendition of chicken noodle. Oceanic highlights include whole fried snapper, the seafood curry and the house specialty: an ultra thin "sizzling" crêpe wrapped around shrimp, mushrooms and sprouts.

Beer and wine available. Serving lunch Tue-Fri, dinner Tue-Sun. Closed Mon. "No country does soups like Vietnam, and Cay Da delivers with its selection of light, but flavorful broths. Crepes and a variety of chicken, seafood, beef and vegetarian entrees prepared in subtle sauces are also popular with the locals who frequent the place."
