At a two-day fashion shoot for the magazine this week the crew was treated to scrumptious lunch from Republic (Mmmmm vegetable sandwiches!) which got MM to thinking about this gem of a noodle spot. Chef-Owner Huy Chi Le just introduced a zexy new Bento Box for a recession-friendly $12. That's a steal!!! We might just have to take a night off from going to Indochine (where Huy is also chef-owner) and shake it on down to Republic. We expect to see you all there!
