Here is a final, slightly more organized look inside Nongla, Sawtelle's new Vietnamese cafe opening May 20. This family affair, run by sister/brother team Elaine and Victor Phuong plus mother and chef Khanh Phan, serves inexpensive Vietnamese staples like spring rolls, pho, and banh mi. Dishes are based off old family recipes.
As for design, there's a small bar to the back (liquor license still to come), plus two-tops up front. Furniture was custom made from reclaimed wood by Knowhow Shop and 2ndwnd design studio.
