Dinner at Le Soleil on Clement

Bodegadawg | Nov 20, 2006 01:05 AM

Last night we had dinner at Le Soleil on Clement St. in San Franicsco. Le Soleil was my first experience with Vietnamese food 13 or so years ago, and it has been bought and sold a few times over the years, I think. I was so impressed with my meal that I had to tell you. The Mango Salad mangos, carrots, red onions , cilantro and topped with fried shallots, I've probably missed a couple things, was exceptional! Every flavor was distinct, and the shallots added a crunch that was wonderful. Barbequed pork rolls, clams with black beans, and a delicious 5 spice roast chicken rounded out the dinner and all were excellent. The sauces were all delicate, and it seemed mede for the specific dish they were served with. I'm really amazed that I had given up on them years ago. I will definitely go back.
