Lang Van

I finally got to try Vietnamese food on Friday and I WILL be going back for more.

Greg and I went to Lang Van for lunch on Friday and it was AMAZING.

We started out with the spring roll appetizer which came with tofu and a scrumptious blend of veggies and herbs.

I had a vermicelli bowl with pork, shrimp, and imperial roll (number 45 on the menu for everyone following along at home). On top there were shredded carrots and jicama. The real surprise came in the bottom of the bowl with an unbelievable combination of lettuce, cucumber, mint, basil, and cilantro. Every bite was a burst of a combination of flavors I've never had before. It tasted so fresh and alive. The menu is huge and I want to go back and explore all of it.

Bottom line: WOW!

Ahhh, so glad Greg introduced you to Vietnamese food. It's my absolute favourite...for all the reasons you've mentioned in your post. Try their "pancake" next time. :>
