    I would skip the bland Vietnamese and go for some Cambodian water buffalo hoofs stewed in bug broth.

    You have to go to the Korean joint and order kugogi to get some dog.
    Probably got some good cat and rat at the Vietnamese place though :hungry

    That was pretty darn good. We had Hòanh thánh chiên and Sủi cảo chiên appetizers.

    I had Phở tái chin bò viên soup and added a bunch of hot sauce, sprouts and lime. Very good and very hot.

    My wife had the Phở tái soup.

    All very good.

    Hot Vit Lon

    I googled the Vietnamese name just for you. I doubt they will serve it though. I used to know a Vietnamese lady once many years ago.

    Spring rolls are the best.

    Ca Kho To (Caramelized Fish in Clay Pot) is also very good.

    The fish clay pot sounds awesome and no they didn't have it.

    Their menu was actually very simple

    My wife and I used to eat at a Japanese joint in ST. Pete.

    We would order a "Box" and it was way good.

    Hot Vit Lon is fertilized duck eggs partially hatched so that the fetus is forming. A delicacy from what I was told. Not sure I could eat one.

    I had Caramelized Fish and it is delicious.

    Family owned business. Very nice people. The wife came over and spoke with us, she says everything is very healthy and everything is made fresh with no MSG.

    Then my wife decided to make fun of how much soup I got on my shirt and the poor lady tried not to laugh. It didn't work.

    We enjoyed everything and will definitely go back.

    Slurping broth and having noodles spank your face is considered a hats off to the cook.

    I have a problem eating streusel to this day.

    On a serious note, Vietnamese food is very good. Chinese food is about the only Asian food that I really don't care for.

    sometimes when we have guests over, especially my bil and the cousins, we do a spring roll spread, have all the fixings out and a bowl of warm water to dip the rice paper in
    it's a fun way to share dinner and have a kitchen party

    Next time try out Bun noodles without the broth or nam neung which is grilled pork with a roll your own spring roll set up

    go get a bahn mi for lunch one day.

    Someone said there's a place on Colonial that makes great Vietnamese sandwiches. Let's do an OT lunch there.

    Place in Tampa has excellent Banh Mi sandwiches. 2 grilled pork Banh Mi sandwiches and a bowl of wonton soup makes for a great lunch! This place won best sandwich in Tampa a few years ago, but everything on the menu is really good.

    Yeah, I know... I won't eat Korean either even though I hear the dog is excellent. :grin

    I wouldn't let my wife drive the nippon Honda van...except it was free from the MIL and it is not polite to not accept expensive gifts :wink...and I figure we're even with that whole Hiroshima / Nagasaki thing...

    Yeah, I'm conflicted....as a proud German-American I have to say the "motherland" has been less "motherly" and more MOTHER *%$# in the past.... but their beer is good, optics are top notch and make some kick tail cars....

    If I eat streusel...It will be Apple as a homage to the good old USA and Apple pie. :)
