Why Cuc Gach Cafe is special ?

The Cuc Gach Cafe is another Southeast Asian-rural feeling cafe. Wood abounds. The music is soft and exotic. Sugarcane is used for straw. The chairs are comfy and the wifi strong and consistent. Good, quiet place to work or meet up. Painstakingly furnished to resemble a stylish, midcentury Vietnamese home and offering home-style dinners—stir-fried bok choy; pork stewed in caramel and pepper sauce—it shores up nostalgia for a not-so-distant past, before war and political repression changed everything. When the staff threads a tape onto the vintage player, the plaintive sound of a 1960s Saigonese singer—music that remains banned under Communist rule—moves even Western visitors.

Many of the ingredients are farm to table. With reliable Vietnamese cuisine, especially strong in vegetables/mushroom etc, the owners are building a solid following among Westerners and locals alike. Prices have risen correspondingly. The decor is simple/traditional, wooden tables and chairs, on two levels. Personally, I prefer the downstairs. Service is satisfactory, nothing special. I recommend this place for lunch rather than dinner.
