Went to My Canh tonight. Ordered the small green papaya salad ($4), the clay pot pork ($7) -- both specials --, the pork rolls ($3), and my wife got the stewed tofu with peas and carrots for her entree ($6).

The clay pot pork was quite tasty. Heavy pork taste. Is there such a thing as aged pork? If I get trichinosis..... Really, though, it was quite good. Very tender braised pork in a nice sweet, spicy, tangy sauce.

The green papaya salad was adequate, but the pork rolls were only okay. The pork had little flavor and I don't know that there was much point in getting those as opposed to normal salad rolls.

My wife liked her tofu with peas okay, but wasn't too thrilled. It was a slightly spicy, kind of mushy sauce of soft tofu with a small amount of peas and carrots.

The clay pot was encouraging, but I'd need to try a few more dishes before I could decide whether it's a one hit wonder or not.
