Asian Persuasion: 2 Different Places - 2 VERY Good Choices

Vietnamese cuisine gets top billing on my list of things I enjoy eating. From spicy to mild and everything in between, it simply has so much to offer --and, when done well, has incredible flavor.

I love Rouge et Blanc. I owe this blog a REAL review about the place. In the meantime, I'll tell you: some of the BEST green papaya salad I have EVER had in my ENTIRE LIFE - plus sausages and shrimp cerviche - just writing about these menu items make my mouth water uncontrollably. (Sorry, not a pretty visual, I know - but it's true.) Great wine list, fantastic service - and a coffee that you should NOT miss out on to top off the fine meal you just had.

Baohaus - Manager's Meal Rice Bowl
And.... switching to another Asian cuisine and not anywhere NEAR the classy level of Rouge et Blanc - I recently went to Baohaus -- literally a place that blew my mind this past weekend. Hole in the wall looking joint off 14th Street - nothing to look at, really. But the food! Wow! I had the Manager's Meal rice bowl. THANK YOU for the brilliance. Not to mention the tasty taro fries that offered a perfecting pairing to the meal.

  1. I know Chinese is very basic as far as Asian foods go, but i always keep going back to Hop Kee on Mott St. I like their salt n pepper fried squid and chinese broccoli. Sooo good.
