Green Papaya Vietnamese Bistro

Although well known to many locals, I only recently discovered why Green Papaya has such a large following in Dallas. The quaint Vietnamese bistro provides complimentary valet, a quasi-chic atmosphere without the pretension, and has several vegetarian options, all of which can easily be made vegan by omitting the egg. Menu items include Goi Cuon Chay (tofu spring rolls served with a perfectly seasoned peanut sauce), Com Chien Chay (tofu and vegetable fried rice), Hu Tieu Xao Tofu (noodles with tofu, Chinese broccoli and bean sprouts), and Tao Hu Xao Voi Rau (mixed vegetables and tofu served with rice or pasta). With a respectable wine list and quite possibly the best peanut sauce I have ever tasted (it really is all about the little things), my only worry is the bistro's dangerously close proximity to my home!
