As I was getting the sandwiches at Banh Mi & Che CALI Bakery for our picnic, I sent the middle '87 off to buy banh cuon (Vietnamese rolled rice noodles) at Thai Son Lo Banh Cuon, which is located a few doors down in the same strip mall. I had stopped by here, and next door at Ba Tu Trai Cay Ngon, when Lan of Angry Asian Creations was in town, but she had only wanted mangosteens. Obviously, I couldn't blog about Thai Son Lo Banh Cuon when I hadn't tried the banh cuon.
As you can see, they do sell plenty of jackfruit and other tropical fruits.
And fresh flowers too.
The signage also says they sell mi (Vietnamese egg noodles), but I didn't buy any that day.
The middle '87 bought a shrimp banh cuon and a pork and Nam Meo (Vietnamese Tree Ear Fungus) one. $3 each for 1-lb of each.
How much do I love that they gave us an extra bag of Nuoc Mam Cham (Vietnamese Fish Dipping Sauce) and Hanh Phi (Vietnamese Fried Shallots)?
Didn't the shrimp banh cuon look so lovely? Pretty pink and green jeweled tones.
But then, the pork and mushroom banh cuon looked might tasty too.
Even for a to-go shop, both noodles were expertly prepared. You can just tell by the pictures how carefully each noodle was rolled and stuffed.
Almost done gathering our picnic supplies. We still needed to get drinks!
