        Kind of a spring roll. Eaten soft and cold w/ a dipping sauce, not fried.

    1. HON'S (House of Noodles) also on Resevoir Ave has a nice Nime Chao.

      1. Jackie's Galaxy are fairly good... I like Sawaddee's on Hope St myself...

          Sawadees? Haven't heard of it, where is it?

          1. re: Garris

            Found the address and their website. I never noticed it despite driving by frequently!
            What else would you recommend on their menu, any personal favorites? Might get more than just the nim chow!

              Almost everything is good... I'm a fan particularly of the Lab Chicken, Ka Nom Jean. Pad Thai is average, though (Siam Square rules locally in that department).

          2. It's been 10 years since I lived in the area, and time admittedly has a funny way of softening the critic in me, but whenever I'm nearby, I make it a point to grab nime chow from Apsara in South Providence.

              there was a place in an old mill in fall river by sams bakery that had nime chow the size of your arm!!!!they were like 2 for a dollar,and rediculously great,a shrimp in every bite!God,those really were the days....its all about the sauce.....

              1. re: im hungry

                I think that would be Apsara. Good eats!

                  The last time I went to the Apsara location on Quequechan St. It was gone! This was about 6 months ago. Where is it located now?

                2. re: im hungry

                  I second Apsara in Fall River. Awesome food all around.

                  1. re: marachino

                    Hands down... Apsara is great! I have only been to the one on the East side, but the sauce was amazing with the Nim Chow!

              2. Pho Horn's... although it's called under the vietnamnese name. I want to say it's buon cuon...? but not positive.

                  Hong Meas makes a great Nime Chow. They're right over the bridge on Warren Ave in East Providence (corner of Broadway).
