Tucked away on a busy corner of East Dallas is Mot Hai Ba, a tiny and beloved neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant. A small handful of tables and dancing shadows from candlelight create an intimate vibe around bowls of hot pho and dishes like stuffed peppers, day boat scallops, and eggplant curry. Aesthetically and spatially, this is one of the most enduring date spots the city has to offer, so bring someone you hope to someday split the rent with.
