New Pasteur... my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. It's on Baxter St. It is cheap and yummy AND you can always count on hearing terrible music piped in. For many years they played a muzak version of Carlos Santana's greatest hits, Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va, etc. Then they changed to the same thing but with Madonna and Whitney Houston. Then had a period, which unfortunately continues to this day, of sugary Asian pop ballads. But what they have now is also a very sweet, older gentleman waiter who sings along to the sugary pop, during the course of your entire meal. He knows the lyrics, he hums, he whistles, he sings to himself with enough gusto that everyone can hear him. There are always aural surprises at New Pasteur.
