Ok, all of you foodies! They opened a new restaurant by us and I am planning on getting dinner there one night this week. I've had Thai food before, but never Vietnamese and I have been wanting to try it.

i'd love to hear all of your suggestions for what I should try.

I would get some vietnamese fresh spring rolls as an appetizer. Those are YUMMY!!!

I would also get a bowl of pho, because it's delicious, and I'd get pad thai because I love pad thai!

I hope you enjoy it! The menu is making me hungry!!! :)

Bun is awesome - grilled meat or seafood on top of rice vermicelli with all sorts of fresh raw veggies and chopped peanuts! They will give you a little bowl of fish sauce, dump it over top and then add in the chilli sauce if you want to add some spice!

I take bun over pho everytime. More noodles and less of that salty boring broth = better if you ask me!

Naw, I've had good pho - I just don't think it can hold a candle to bun. Bun's got better texture and flavour imo. Plus, more noodles! :fork:

Mmmm... And if they have minced shrimp on sugar-cane as either a topping or appetizer, try that too - you can munch on the sugar cane to get some sweetness after eating the shrimp - sooooooooo good!!!

Sorry! I recommend going with a com dac biet dish. It's basically Vietnamese mixed grill. Great sampling of everything. Get it a as a bun which is a noodle bowl. So good. For curry I recommend Massaman. It's not usually killer spicy, but it's influenced by Indian food so it's full of flavor.

that menu isn't intimidating at all...i'd just pick the dishes that feature ingredients you'd gravitate toward naturally :)

i love pho and massamun curry dishes and, well, anything Vietnamese really. pad thai can be really good depending on the place too. enjoy, Elise! :)

perhaps a bit late for this visit (just saw the thread, you're likely dining now...) but you can judge a Viet place on the quality of the pho, of course. good pho = everything else is going to be good, IMHO. spring rolls are a must. i prefer yellow curries to massamun or red, but they tend to be on the spicy side.

thai tea is good. viet coffee is better. i'm making a glass of it right now. :coffee:
