Best Vietnamese Dishes in NOLA

New Orleans' Vietnamese dining scene is great and it hasn't received enough attention on Chowhound.

Perhaps a good way to get people started talking about it would be for everyone to list their favorite Vietnamese restaurants in New Orleans... along with their favorite dishes there.

I'll start:

Kim Son -- Everything "salt baked" is great... Especially the shrimp! Also try fish or chicken in a clay pot. Minced Basil Chicken. Szechuan Eggplant. Hunan string beans. Spicy beancurd with vegetables, vegetarian spring rolls.

9 Roses -- Hunan shrimp, Garlic eggplant, Number 9 (I forget the name, but it's like a Vietnamese ceviche with raw beef, onions, lemons, herbs, etc. -- very fresh tasting), Vietnamese Crepe, thin soups.

Tan Dinh -- Best Pho and Bun Dishes.

Please tell me more. This food is great, but it's not always easy to tell what is good from the huge menus at these places.
