Some of the dishes that I got to try really blew me away. I love veggies and desserts and I think Vietnam's desserts have piqued my interest. Also, the spring rolls are so fresh and to die for!

These Vietnamese Braised Vegetables above remind me of a healthier version of Pakbet! What distinguishes it though is the mushrooms added to this and lack of alamang. I think the way they prepared this dish made me taste veggie flavors that I did not know are there!
