  1. I would love to do this one sans shrimp. We can't do seafood here. <y daughter is hyper allergic. But I bet this would be good with something else in it's place.

  6. I love goi cuon!! And you are just too nice to share with your neighbors! You’ve got the rolling technique down quite well =)
    I normally have too much stuffing, like lap xuong, eggs and pork tenderloin and then can barely roll it hihih.

    I like how you make you own dipping sauce. When I make peanut sauce I only use hoisin sauce, peanut butter, some water and chili paste. Easy peasy. Hope you’ll give it a try.
