Traditional Vietnamese Spring Rolls are made with rice paper, so these shrimp and pork springrolls were not the same. They're wrapped in wonton wrapper. There was a huge tray of them though, so I found them to be delicious because I didn't have to stand over a pan and make them myself!
Vietnamese Bun Rieu. Filled with sparerib tips, crab and pork dumplings, and savory broth, this was worth gaining 5 pounds!
Roasted Duck from Chi's! You can order it boneless, and it comes with soft steamed buns, hoisin, and scallions. YUM!
Well, that was our spread from the first night! The next day, we had a nice tamale spread for lunch. Laura's from Hot Springs, Arkansas, and apparently the famous McClards restaurant there does a nice tamale spread! You may already know about it. I didn't! But I'll share soon!
