I don't think I could have selected better than this place and their 2 sample platters, one which is a mix of dips and the other one is called '5 bites' (together 10$), as our first restaurant stop in LPQ. This gave me a nice and very tasty overview of the cuisine and I now know some of my favs (like this sweet chili sauce with buffalo skin, super spicy, but also very rich in flavor) .. other favs are the sausage, the eggplant dip, the coriander dip .. pretty much all of it, maybe the tomato dip and the sour veggies were less fav.
And if you have not seen it before, you get your intro on how to eat sticky rice here. I also need to mention the fantastic drinks .. I had a tamarind cooler and next time I will try the ginger / lemon grass cooler.
There are so many other food options around, but I can see why many people seem to return here.
