If the word crêpe makes you think of Paris and moonlight and romance, the starkly lit, fairly grubby confines of Cong Ly will mock you and like it. This ain’t a first-date place. But the truly authentic Vietnamese eatery will impress chowhounds. Delectable pork cutlets, wrapped in a thin crêpe and placed on a bed of rice vermicelli, with a side of pickled cucumber, lotus root and julienned carrots, cost a mere $8.
