Gingergrass Rave, and question on authenticity

z-man | Jan 7, 2005 05:15 PM

Went to Gingergrass last weekend, and I think I have found my new favorite place. We had the crab and shrimp imperial rolls for an appetizer, shared a beef pho soup and shared a bo sate entree. Everything was absolutely amazing, but especially the bo sate, which is super tender filet mignon in a peanutty sauce, super delicious. Everything seemed well prepared and fresh, and all of the meats were very unfatty and of great quality. Both my wife and I like to eat, and this was more than enough food for both of us (I think we could have brought some of the pho home, but didn't bother because we were hitting Red Lion on the way out...) Very reasonable prices, too, especially for the quality of food.

My wife was as enthusiastic as I was about this place.

Anyway, my question to you hounds is, neither my wife nor I have been to any "real" vietnamese food restaurants before, but have been meaning to. How does Gingergrass compare to, say, Pho 79 or some of the other "real" vietnamese food places? Or can Gingergrass be considered "real" vietnamese food?

Thanks in advance.
