Educate me about Vietnamese food

danhole | Oct 23, 2007 06:45 AM

We are going to Mai's Vietnamese Restaurant. This is my DD's favorite restaurant, and it's her birthday today. She has eaten there many time. I went once, but whatever i ordered wasn't what I expected. I do NOT know much about Vietnamese cuisine, so please educate me a bit. I am not crazy about fish, so I am looking for something that doesn't have a lot of fish sauce in it, unless you can tell me that it won't taste fishy. I know Pho is soup, but what is Bun? I think that is what I had last time, but There were so many noodles. I know there are all kind of other dishes with odd names, but what are they? What would you recommend? I love spicy food, but my stomach doesn't, so I have to keep it on the milder side.

Here is a link to Mai's.
