Just got back from a vacation in Seattle (which has some great Asian restaurants now) and Vancouver BC (awesome dim sum and squab) and had a hankering for Vietnamese. Because mom gave me a large box full of home-cooking, I was only able to sample two dishes w/ my SO.
We ordered the won ton soup and and beef stew with french bread.
The won ton soup tasted great and had fresh lettuce, onions, cilantro and slices of pork in it. The appetizer came with four pork won tons and the wrappers were nicely thin and delicate.
The beef stew had a wonderful complex flavor (meaning I couldn't discern all of the spices) with slices (not chunks) of beef that were meltingly tender and potatoes and carrots. The only downside was that the liquid was too thin and I like my stews with lower viscosity. The stew came with two small loaves of french bread that were great for dipping.
When I go back, I plan on ordering the satay beef that we kept hearing everyone talk about while we were there.
