Xe Lua, with Hong

05-11 Xe Lua
You don't often see Vietnamese summer rolls made with fish, but it exists. We discovered some today at Xe Lua, accompanied by a tart and slightly spicy mango sauce. The sauce is kind of odd, at first it tastes like candy but then it dissolves into blandness. The fish summer roll itself was nice, maybe ask for nuoc cham or a peanut sauce instead.

Wow, that looks amazing. I'm so jealous that you get to try all these amazing restaurants for lunch during work! Prior to a week ago, I was lucky to be able to heat up some spaghetti ...
