When you get to Phuc Yea, a Vietnamese-Cajun spot in MiMo, you’ll see a building that was probably designed in the late 80s to feature prominently in Miami Vice. But when you head inside, you’ll find a space that looks like it was designed by your aunt who shops exclusively at thrift stores - more the one who finds Chanel for $15 than the one who hoards three-legged lawn chairs for their personality. Get the crispy spring rolls with fish sauce and one of the pho or noodle dishes, or the Cajun fried rice with seafood and andouille sausage. And in the cooler months, sit on the patio with a tiki-drink.
