If you're not familiar with Goi Cuon, they're bonafide Vietnamese delicacies otherwise known as Summer Rolls; think Chinese Spring Rolls that have decided to ditch the deep fat fryer and, instead, go all wholesome and healthy. They're made by packing as much crunchy veg, cool vermicelli noodles, aromatic leaves, garlic, herbs and fresh Asian staples inside an elegant film of rice paper - and, although they're appetiser-sized, the results are divine (word to the wise: Pork + Prawn a staple in Vietnam, so opt for this if you want something really authentic). After nibbling through your Goi Cuon, you'll start on your Pho - a bowl of flat rice noodle broth served with beansprout, coriander, herbs and chillies and interspersed with hunks of beef chicken or tofu + mushroom (the choice is up to you).
