This is some super-insider information from my good friend Tuyen (owner of New Que Huong) on where to get authentic, vegetarian Vietnamese food.
This Sunday, August 26th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Quan Am Buddhist Temple, located at 3500 South Goodlett St. near Winchester, is having a bake sale of sorts to raise money for the temple. Instead of cookies and pies, they will be selling homemade curries, soups, and authentic Vietnamese dishes packed up to go, and it's all vegetarian.
I speak from experience when I tell you that the food from this sale is amazing (see image at top). This is something you don't want to miss. It's open to the public and everyone is welcome.
