Just off Figueroa in Highland Park, across the street from the parking lot of the beloved Mr. T’s Bowl, Good Girl Dinette is a clean, airy space, filled with earnest couples and young families, serving bubbly soft drinks made with farmers market fruit (the Meyer lemon is especially good) and preparing a menu of Vietnamese-American comfort food that is especially friendly to vegans. The spicy fries are astonishingly good — topped with the mince of cilantro, fresh chiles and garlic you usually see on Vietnamese-Chinese fried crab or squid. The chicken pot pie, made with a yellow Vietnamese curry and topped with a dense, crisp-topped biscuit, is wonderful. And the clove-spiked beef stew, plumped out with plenty of carrots, is a perfect amalgam of Vietnamese flavors and Depression-era diner cooking, a blend that seems to be exactly what its Highland Park neighborhood, and these times, demand.
