After getting picked up at the San Jose airport this afternoon, we stopped by my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, Vung Tau.

It’s damn hard to eat here now that I’ve gone Paleo because there’s sugar in almost everything. Big sigh.

I ordered a rice plate with grilled pork and grilled shrimp. I asked for vegetables instead of rice and they complied with a nice pile of lettuce and cucumbers and pickled carrots and daikon. 

I made a bunch of mini lettuce wraps and didn’t add extra nuoc cham since the meat was already flavorful enough. This place serves yummy and authentic Vietnamese food – I just can’t come here as much as I used to.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
