Roll your own Vietnamese Spring Rolls in PHX?

Booger | Oct 23, 2006 05:16 PM

In Denver, me and the wife loved a dish we found at most Vietnamese restaurants we visited (my fave, Thai Hiep in the Federal Center).

It was simply, a huge plate of fixins (including rice noodles, grilled pork/chicken/beef, sprouts, and various greens). They then brought out a boiling pot of water, some uncooked rice wrappers, and you wrapped up your own roll.

I haven't done an exhaustive search in Phx yet (only been to Avina's, in Glendale - good, athentic Vietnamese food, in a friendly mom-and-pop restaurant), and the dish wasn't like we like. They brought out the wrappers already cooked, and it just wasn't right.

Has anyone found good roll-your-own spring rolls in Phx (preferably North Phx)? I want the preperation where you cook your own wrappers in boiling water when you are ready for your next roll. This was a staple dish for us in Denver (at least once a week), so I need to locate this soon (to get my fix!).

I plan to try Da Ving this weekend. Hopefully they serve this dish. I have heard good things about this restaurant otherwise.
