decided to impulsively grab some vietnemese food on sunday for a late lunch. dragonfly seemed to get some good buzz round here so we ventured out to sunset.

started off with the hot pocket appetizer. these were like fried wontons filled with ground pork. they were tastey and not very greasy surprisingly. served with a standard sweet & sour dipping sauce.

the vietnemese crepe was interesting. i've never had one of these before and convinced my girlfriend to try it with me despite it containing shrimp. the crepe tasted of coconut which i'm guessing is it's main ingredient, especially due to lack of eggs noted on the menu. it could have used more pork, but had a decent amount of shrimp chunks. i'd love to try some other takes on this crepe at some other restaurants.

the slow braised pork in clay pot was extremely tender and succulent. tasted strongly of soy sauce and black pepper. the description listed coconut juice, but i don't think i could taste it too much. the pork was perfectly cooked, but i kinda got bored with flavoring towards the end of the dish. at first i thought we would order a 2nd portion since it was so succulent, but changed our minds afterwards.

a delicious little adventure. looking forward to trying some other vietnemese spots.
