Nem Nuong Cuon Cha Ram @ Com Tam Long An in San Jose

The Hue place was on the major e/w street where century mall was I think St Clara? perhaps. It had been recommended as a great place for Bun Bo Hue. We were the only Caucasians and it was a challenge to order there but we got it okay. Actually have cooked the dish with a buddy of mine who is Vietnamese. So had a good idea of how good it was. Just spicy enough with a distinct shrimp paste taste.

The old favorite is Vung Tau. Always good. Also a couple of the food stalls in century mall (think that is the name). We order by pointing to otger diners or items in case much to tge amusement of the staff. Also Saigon kitchen. Then another soup place something Hue. Has a delectable bun Bo hue.

The Goi vit quay - duck salad - very good versions of this can be had in Seattle at Green Leaf and Tamarind Tree if you are ever in this neck of the woods. Being based in Berkeley, I find the quality of viet food in that area quite watered down and have to venture south to San Jose to get my fix.
