A motley crew of hounds gathered last night at Lotus Garden in the Mission to share Vietnamese specialties.
We numbered 11, and the dishes we sampled included:
-bo tai chanh (raw beef salad)
-goi ca (chicken salad)
-ga nuong vi (grilled lemongrass chicken)
-bo luc lac (shaking beef)
-cuarang muoi (roast crab vietnamese Lotus Garden style)
-tom xao lan (sauteed prawns with coconut and curry sauce and mixed vegetables)
-ca tim sot hanh (eggplant with garlic sauce)
-dau xao cu cai (green beans)
-kem chien (deep fried ice cream)
-chuoi chien & kem (fried banana with ice cream)
My fellow diners will post soon with photos and in-depth reviews of the chow.
