Rangoon

December 2, 2014


Vietnamese Pan Fried Crepe: Savory fried pancake made of rice flour, water, turmeric powder, stuffed w slivers of fatty pork, shrimp, diced green onion & bean sprouts - 2

J's comment > not bad; loved the crisped edges but could have used more of the actual crepe; decent amt of shrimp and pork; not as good as Hai Phong's or Thai Son's though

Yogurt lamb curry: Marinated boneless lamb, yogurt, cream, fresh mint in medium spicy curry - 2

J's comment > generous amts of tender lamb; sauce was reminiscent of the Indian curries, probably due to the use of yogurt and cream; FYI we asked for medium amts of spiciness to everything and it was just right - spicy but not so much that it was inedible

Pork belly tamarind - 2

J's comment > pork belly not the crisp kind; also had a tad too much fat to meat ratio; good tamarind flavoring

Mohinga: Rice noodles, fish chowder, hard boiled egg, split beans cracker, cilantro and chili garnish - 2

J's comment > flavors OK but soup was a tad too thick for my liking, and too much soup / stew to noodle ratio; not as good as Bo Laksa King's or Amay's

Pork belly mango pickle: Slow cooked boneless pork belly, mango pickle, tamarind, tomato, peparica in cinnamon curry - 2

J's comment > similar to the tamarind pork belly above but w stronger curry notes; mango pickle was indeed a pickle, flavor was reminiscent of the chinese sour plums

Ling cod lemongrass curry: Wild BC ling cod, garlic, onion, ginger in lemongrass curry - 2

J's comment > fish slightly overcooked but not fishy; really salty though, like so salty I couldn't eat more than one bite

Vietnamese coffee - 2
