Vietnamese rice bowl

Zao Vietnamese Bistro's Zao Bowl features two of its most popular dishes on a bowl of rice or noodles (your choice). The crispy spring rolls are made of minced pork, glass noodles and mushrooms. Minced spring onion (scallion) and crushed peanuts are spooned over the charred barbecue pork and chicken. And everything is served with fresh bean sprouts, lettuce and basil, pickled carrots and turnips, and a small bowl of Vietnamese dipping sauce. Yum!

OMG Hilda that is making me so hungry! I love spring rolls. We used to have a graduate student in our department who would make us fresh spring rolls and bring them in for our lunch. So good!

Hilda, this looks delicious! And you know what? I've never tried vietnamese food... but from what I see it seems to be quite different from thai food (this one I have a lot, it's my favourite!).

Beautiful plate, so fresh I can almost smell the aroma. I would like to someday give this a try.

It's so beautifully presented, you've created some fine food porn here. 6^) The sprig of fresh basil really makes it.
