Are you kidding me? Street food is where I get a lot of inspiration. Why? What our fellows humans can do in such a limited space with limited resources boggles my Western mind. I love street food since it crystallizes various flavors without all the fluff from a restaurant and server. It’s culture. It’s actually mainstream.
I have been experimenting heavily with various herbs and tastes for the perfect Gỏi cuốn – Chinese liver sausage version. I will put this out there even though it is super obvious. Gỏi cuốn / Goi Cuon / Vietnamese rolls are not hard to do. It’s all about the dipping sauce and the procurement of fresh, high quality ingredients.
