Vietnamese Beef in Seven Dishes
- Alan Divack
Does anyone know of a vietnamese restaurant that serves this , and does it well? This feast of seven different dishes was supposedly featured in a number of restaurants in Saigon in the old days.
Alternatively, I would love a recommendation for beef wrapped in grape or shiso leaves and grilled. Saigon on Mulberry used to do this very well, but that was at least in the last Bush administration.
I haven't been to Pho Viet Huong in a while, but in my experience they've been better than serviceable, and their beef wrapped in grape leaves is (or at least used to be) one of my favorite dishes. If you go, I'd love to know if it's still excellent (and how the Beef in Seven Dishes is).
