Decided to just turn this into a Little Saigon food adventure…previous tasty places
Phat Ky Mi Ga and Tai Buu Paris
Went to Cay Dua and had the Banh Xeo and Bun Mam. You can smell the mam (fermented anchovy paste) when walking in.
Crispy!!! Shrimp and bean sprouts in the crepe with a hint of coconut milk. Cut a piece and place it in the lettuce with some mint leaves, dip it in some sweet sauce and enjoy. One of my favorite Vietnamese dishes. I might like this better than Van’s.
Comes with a plate of herbs/veggies/limes/chopped chiles/sprouts added those in and with some tableside chili sauce. Mix well. Definitely taste the funk in this, but not as funky as Lao-style papaya salad. Overall taste is savory-umami with a touch of fermented funk.
