Thumbs up Vietnamese Cuisine

I really enjoy this food and in particular a good bowl of Pho. I see a new Vietnamese restaurant will soon be opening on 301 at the SE corner of 466. Does anyone know anything about the owners and their experience in the restaurant business ?

Are Pot Stickers Vietnamese? I love them.

You can get good ones frozen at Publix.

Pot stickers are usually found at Chinese restaurants. Here is a link to a good representation of a menu at a Vietnamese restaurant.

I think of spring rolls as another separate thing from pot stickers.

The reason I ask is that the first time I had pot stickers was when we were invited to a celebration by a Vietnamese couple, they served pot stickers.

Pot stickers are kind of wet and sticky and usually have pork inside and spring rolls usually have chicken or vegetables and they are dry on the outside, or at least that is what I have always thought and I am no expert on Asian food. I do like it, but I have to be careful because of my shellfish allergy. So I make it at home or buy it frozen so I can see what is in it.

We have off the boat Vietnamese in our family, her rolls have no meat, uses rice paper, and her kimchi will knock your socks off. She will only cook What has been passed on for generations. She refuses to add or change. Her Pho is the best I have had since Vietnam. her children all born in US only changes recipes when she is not in their house, but never adds meat to their rolls. That why I equate them to spring rolls. She has never made a pot sticker, rice paper would not allow, but In my head I can hear her saying why waste time, too little filling, just make right way, ROLLS

Those sound like Summer Rolls. Rolled in rice paper with nothing but veggies inside, served with a dipping sauce of soy sauce,a touch of fish sauce and mirin ( sweet rice wine). That and a bowl of Chicken Pho equal Nirvana.

Gracie; Sam's Club has a box of easy to make Chicken Potstickers from Ajinimoto in the freezer section. 5 trays of 12 rolls plus dipping sauce. Last for months in your freezer. All self contained, just open the package, put it in a skillet and cook them for about 12 minutes. Left overs can be eaten the next day or 2.
