Green Lemongrass Vietnamese

23 Jul

1086 Kingsway (between Glen Dr and Windsor St.) in Vancouver

Although their menu had quite a few items I’ve not commonly seen elsewhere, I felt this place was a little hit and miss. I think if you know what to order, it may have been better than what we experienced. I’ll try it again someday.

B40 Beef Satay and Spring Rolls – good

C3 Portk Chop, Shredded Port, & Meat Loaf – good

T17 Seafood and Pork Noodle Soup – two thumbs down.

L3 Basil Beef – two thumbs down (somehow the sauce felt too dark or bitter)

L1 Shaken Beef – good. (quite similar to L3 but no bitterness)

Vietnamese Subs (home-made)

13 Feb

Well, if you can’t make it out to buy Vietnamese subs (Au Petit Cafe has my fave chicken sub), then you could make your own at home. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s not bad.

This is comfort food at its best! I love watching the silence as people discover the rich flavours of this great regional Vietnamese dish! Summer! Winter! It doesn’t matter! Flavors like this transcend the seasons!

This dish has been a family favorite of mine for many years and I am thrilled that diners at RQ have taken to it. My mother used to prepare this once a year for Vietnamese New Year. My seven brothers and sisters and I always looked forward to this dish, especially in the years when we were farmers and very poor in the Vietnamese countryside and meat was hard to get.
