GUEST,Rana BS: Vietnamese food?Advice please. (33) RE: BS: Vietnamese food?Advice please. 19 Jan 01

Lots of Vietnamese restaurants within 5 min of work - replacing some of the chinese ones.

Certainly not as spicy as Thai and can be much lighter than Chinese.

The soups (Pho) make a meal - beef slices in a broth which basically cooks it (unless well-done requested). Can also have beef balls. The soup will have noodles and then you add basis or colantra, pepper alime and bean sprouts.

Other staples are X and y with vermicelli, X might be pork, chicken etc, Y might be spring rolls. A cold summer roll is also good, pasta type roll which encloses bean sprouts, shrimps maybe etc and you eat cold dipping in a peanut sauce. There are lots of other dishes including curries etc. The coffee drink is a favourite of a colleague. Expresso amount of coffee dripped onto evaporated milk, stirred and then poured into a glassful of ice.

Might just pop out now for a pho - runs at about 3.99 canadian dollars for a large filling bowl.

Cheers Rana
