Does anyone know of any Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto that offer brown rice vermicelli as an option in their dishes?

    I don't think you can make rice vermicelli out of brown rice... (if anyone know otherise please let me know!). Rice vermicelli is made out of just the (cooked)starches of the polished rice and it would have nothing to do with whether the rice is whote or brown. But with the health-food industry nowadays, who knows! Maybe there IS a brown rice vermicelli....

      I have bought brown rice vermicelli at supermarket (T&T, some Loblaws) but it is the very thin kind like the type for Singapore noodle as opposed to the type used for pho or bun or pad thai.

        Well "bun" uses the thin vermicelli like for Singapore noodles. I've got some too from Chinatown, they're sort of hidden and not easy to spot on the shelf.
