Mar 8 2009


Green Leaf
This place gets rave reviews, but really I think Tamarind Tree and Lemon Grass are just as good, if not better, and cheaper. We had Vietnamese style pancakes with pork and shrimp, and I had Vietnamese Sour Soup with catfish. The pancakes were very light and crisp around the edges, with nice coconut flavor. They were of course stuffed with bean sprouts and eaten with lettuce, cilantro, basil, and a couple of other herbs. Super good. The soup was odd. It was more sweet than sour and had some slices of whole catfish, okra, pineapple, and taro stem. It wasn't unpleasant, but it just wasn't really what I wanted. The catfish was pretty tasty though, despite the bones.

Take-out pizza. 'Twas just fine, as always. Not as crispy as it can be, but otherwise good stuff.
