ended up in the Sunset randomly yesterday evening on our way home from an adventure. after consulting my trusty chowhound guidebook, we opted to try PPQ Vietnemese for the frist time.
we ordered the imperial rolls to start. i've had my share of egg rolls, but only have tried "imperial rolls" once before and those were at Slanted Door. these compared favorably. they were very porky and the addition of lettuce and mint were quite refreshing despite being fried.
For a main course we opted for the Grilled Pork Plate which consisted of 6 pork skewers, mint, rice wrappers, bean sprouts, lettuce & shredded carrot. Wrapped everything up like a SE Asian soft taco and chowed. The pork was tender enough and flavorful, and when messily combined with everything else it was fun and delicious.
We both enjoyed the meal, but having very little Vietnemese expereince, can't say how it compares to other locals spots.
I'd be interested in trying pho somewhere, but am a bit nervous about the quality of beef used by most if not all places. Are there any good Viet joints that use natural/organic or free range meat? Other than Slanted Door?
