loved the concept, loved the food. staff was funny and helps you prepare the springrolls that come with different kinds of fillings: banh xeo (some kind of vegetable pancake), meat-sticks, vegetable and seperate springrolls (springroll-ception).
okay, we weren't sure about whether they washed their hands before helping us out (probably not), but we didn't get sick nd of course you can tell them not to touch your food.

would've come more often if it wasn't our first night already. at least give it a try.

a local suggested this place: authentic and yummy to the max! not to forget, it's rather cheap for an all-you-can-eater.

It's tucked along one of the alleys in the ancient town. Take a rice paper, place your veges, banxeo and grilled pork satay, wrap them up, dipped it in their homemade peanut sauce and eat it! Such guilty pleasure this is.

We went here through Tripadvisor recommendation. Found it hard to find as it's in an allyway off the main street. We looked like we were lost and a local asked us where we wanted to go. We were a little hesitant following him as we thought he was just taking us to his business or restaurant, but he showed us the way, and then tried to get us to go to his tailor shop. We were polite and told him we had already ordered our clothing which we had. Top points for trying though. This restaurant is basically just some tables in an allyway. You sit down order a drink and before you know it the food is put down in front of you. There's only one thing on the menu so don't ask to see one. It's spring rolls, and the waitress makes them in front of you. We had been avoiding salad for hygiene purposes in Vietnam, but here you don't have a choice and we didn't get sick. The food is deep fried but delicious and only around $5 pp. We had it for lunch. Enjoy the experience.

A little difficult to find, but they fed me and told me I was a happy Buddha. I think I ate too much. Awesome!
