New Que Huong is just one of the restaurants mentioned in this week's Food News column that is selling its house-made pickles.
When I was there about week ago, I had expressed interest in buying a jar, but they were out. I was, however, given a few of the pickled vegetables to sample.
So very good, and a tasty if sharp ending to lunch.
I started with the Vietnamese crepe ($7.25).
This is basically the pancake I keep slobbering praise over at Saigon Le (New Que Huong's owner is a Saigon Le vet).
I also got the tofu with Curry ($8.95).
This is a stir fry in a curry coconut milk sauce with onion, bell peppers, and lemongrass. Again, very good.
And, finally, in lieu of a fortune cookie (which I do eat), there was a little square of chocolate mousse cake. Not sure if this is the usual end-of-meal m.o., and, frankly by that point I was full-up and then some with the sample of pickles. But I did what anyone would do in this situation ... I took the cake with me.
