In 2019, Thao & Nam launched a quarterly pop-up dinner series called Tóp Tép—an homage to Vietnamese, and especially Hanoian, cuisine—which quickly found its home at Bar Hermanito.
Tóp Tép means “munching loudly” in Vietnamese. Back when Thao & Nam were kids, their favorite activities were hanging out with friends after school and exploring street food and bustling alleyway eateries in Hanoi. They want to bring you the Vietnamese cuisine they experienced growing up.
The food at Top Tep embraces classic Vietnamese dishes with modern twists. The menu will focus on fresh, flavorful, and balanced food meant to be shared with friends and family. Started in San Francisco, now Los Angeles. Top Tep is proud to bring you our “home away from home”.
