what should we order at Rangoon?
I've had one excellent family-style dinner experience at Rangoon that involved breads, salads, tofus, etc., and one pretty mediocre lunch off the lunch menu.
I'm looking to repeat my dinner experience. We need some (but not all) vegetarian choices. We'll definitely order some thousand layer bread, but what else? Ginger salad? Tea leaf?
Rangoon has developed into one of my absolute favorites. I love it. Some favorites (the ** ones I believe are vegetarian, but you might want to check because I'm not really positive):
Firecracker Lentil Fritter**
Coconut Galanga Soup (might be able to get a Veg version)
Spring Ginger Salad**
Basil Noodles (warning: taste more like GARLIC noodles to me, but I love them)
Spicy Kung Pao Chicken (NOT like normal Chinese food Kung pao)
Jungle Chicken (there's also a Jungle Tofu)
I wish I'd tried more of the vegetarian entrees to make some recommendations (it's not unusually for me to choose a veg dish over a meat one, I just haven't seemed to much here)....out of curiosity, what did you have that was mediocre here? I've never had a bad dish, but I've also never come for lunch.
There are so many things I love there. I'm not sure what all is vegetarian, because I suspect there is shrimp paste and/or fish sauce in a lot of things.
Dishes I love:
Crispy tofu triangles
Thousand layer bread and potato curry
Spring Ginger salad
Festival fish soup
Kung pao anything
just about all of the fish preparations
