Saw this spot featured on the Netflix show “Ugly Delicious,” so we were excited to visit. We went with the shrimp fusion dish. As you can see from the photos, these shrimp are huge. Try the seafood fried rice, too. Highly recommended.

You must stop here and dive into the Vayjun shrimp. The flavors are incredible! Don't forget to order the bread to soak up the spicy butter sauce. Its awesome!
