    Now you're talking, I could live on these little beauties. Had the raw herring spring rolls below recently in Vietnam. Simple but the delicious. Basically green stuff, shredded coconut, and strips of raw herring (in the bowl with the red sauce). Does anyone know how they make the sauce for the fish?


    ^ Ingredients for raw fish spring rolls


    ^ Bit tricky rolling the suckers yourself ... this one was a complete disaster but still tasted awesome

    ... oh yeah, that stuff they give you to dip them in is awesome. Think it is just peanuts, fish sauce, and chilli.

    Mrs worked for a Vietnamese restaurant in Ubon, while she was studying to be a teacher.
    Her spring rolls are awesome! You seem to have forgotten the mint?

    Well he doesn't know any decent dog meat joints in Saigon I can assure you of that!

    Anyway, if it aint spring rolls I reckon the old Bánh mě is the delicious. I love good bread and the Vietnamese bakers do a friggin great job. I don't care much for the stuff inside but I aint worked out how to tell them to leave it out yet. Quite like the cheese spread they put in em though.



    Trying to teach Mrs. Kerr how to make one of these suckers, but we can't find the right bread here in Bangkok. Would love to learn how to make it myself. Here's a vid of how its done in Vietnam .

    Wayne Kerr has a lot of great food pics for VN food. He's sampled quite a bit, too.

    I like Vietnamese food. There is a lot of the VNese food I haven't even tried, and like all countries, there are regional variations of Northern, Central, and Southern specialties.

    Fresh Springs rolls have many names as there are many different kinds.

    Bo Bia (Bohigh tone (sac) and middle flat tone bia (ngang) is one name for the fresh and not fried ones.


    I'm sure the internet has a lot of recipes. Or you can just come to VN for a food holiday.

    Enjoy

    ... Fried spring rolls are called 'cha gio. The sauce in question is called Tuong.
    As Milkman says there are many variations on spring rolls. Even more on the sauce dips.

    ^The chefs helper is Vietnamese!
    She's gonna cook up a noodle dish this week for me and the missus to try.
    I'm looking for the names of the dishes!

    Yes 'Fer' (or Pho as you'll see it written) means noodles ... but its also slang for "bit on the side" or "mia noi". Be careful for what you ask for Roc ... unless of course the chef's helper is a good sort.

    There are a few good Vietnamese restuarants in Bangkok, my favourite is on Suttisan Rd out near Poseidon. Tried one in the new Esplanade complex on Ratchada Rd the other day and I'm sorry to report the food is completely crap ... blody pricey too. There is a big Vietnamese section in the Thewet market on the weekend ... but I guess you have to know what you're looking for.

    GoW and I really liked that one. I normally get pissed off paying loads for a bunch of leaves and twigs, but I thought Miss Saigon was really good.

    Maybe I've grown to enjoy the twigs and stuff ... fresh spring rolls gave me the runs. I went there with my father so maybe they thought we were pooves. The Vietnamese don't like pooves much.

    Since you guys liked it I'll give them a second chance ... could have been the big night the evening before at Angelwitch that gave me the runs.

    Little gem of a place on Sukhumvit Soi 13. Xuan Mai. As well as being the owner she also is the chef.
