Just a threesome so we could only try so much.

#4 CuÓn Tôm summer roll appetizer with prawns was plump and fresh.

#33 Cari Gà, chicken curry - very tender chicken.

From their "Caramelize" menu, we had to try something just to see what it was, so we selected #37 Gà Kho Xä, chicken simmered in caramel sauce with spicy lemongrass. Again, very tender chicken. Not as spicy as advertized. I personally didn't like the smell of fish sauce in the dish.

#39 Bún Bò Xào (or #42 Bún Bò NÜong?), Stir fried (or grilled?) lemon grass beef with rice vermicelli and nÜoc mam sauce. It was a winner. Which one did we have?

A guest at the next table ordered a huge fish, I think it was #30 Cá Chiên, a whole crispy flounder with spicy ginger sauce, which she sent back to the kitchen for what we suspect was deboning.
