Brentwood’s Mai Lee border hops from Vietnam to China in its extensive menu, starting its itinerary with hu tieu, pho, bun, and mi soups, and following with rice porridge, sandwiches, noodle bowls, rice plates, and, finally, beef, chicken, pork, seafood, and vegetarian dinners. Yes, you’ll have to cope with the restaurant’s location crammed amidst a Best Buy, fitness center, and parking garage, but all doubts will melt once you’ve sat down at one of the understated light-colored wooden tables and ordered banh xeo (crispy crepes bursting with shrimp and pork).
