A question for Vietnamese food fans...

Chef Z | Nov 24, 2006 01:30 PM

My friend was recently telling me that when he was home in Texas one of his old friends took him to a place to get a Vietnamese dish that he said he has only been able to find at the restaurant in Texas and in LA. We're now looking for it in NYC and I was hoping all you chowhounders could help out. From the way it has been described, the dish is basically rice vermicelli served with various types of meat on top in addition to little tortilla-like pancakes. On the side is mint, lettuce and a light, flavorful dipping sauce. The idea is you create little sandwich wraps and dip them in the sauce (along with a spicy sauce). I may be betraying my extreme lack of knowledge regarding Vietnamese cuisine, perhaps this is a very common dish at restaurants, but I don't know what it's called. Please help!! Thanks in advance!
