Those bored by basic brunch options leave the hollandaise behind and head to House Special. Here, the mid-morning meal consists of Vietnamese-style dim sum, a line-up of Saigon-inspired share plates such as dumplings filled with ground pork, jicama and shrimp; a red-bean cinnamon bun topped with condensed-milk frosting; and a crispy egg-wrapped radish cake. A tropical mimosa with soursop and orange juices, or a creamy condensed milk–spiked Vietnamese coffee make perfect pairings. Consider brunch boredom banished.
