Dinner at Dat Thanh

Back in October, I had a birthday dinner at a tiny restaurant in Little Saigon. There are only about 6 tables in this tiny family restaurant, but they are usually full because of the growing reputation of this little place, specializing in rice roll spring rolls filled with home made shrimp sausage or pork sausage and salad greens. Everything in the place is meticulously made, with a masterful touch, each taste and texture carefully balanced to produce the greatest effect, and for a tiny price.
I also ordered bbq chicken and shrimp on broken rice, which was wonderful.
As if this weren't enough, the owner remembered us from the last time we were there, remembered everything we ate and who was there and where we sat, where we came from. We were thoroughly impressed by the food and all of it.

One thing about living in the sticks...no variety in restaurants. Slightly green with envy.

You're always welcome here if you see a good deal on a flight out to CA, as I've said before, and I promise to fete you with trips to ethnic restaurants galore!
