Shannon and I went out to eat at Mi Mi’s Saigon 39. It is a Vietnamese restaurant in the mid-town area. I haven’t been there in about a year it seems. I love their Spring Rolls which are served with a fantastic peanut sauce.
I was really surprised they weren’t busier. Usually they are packed, but we were there right at 5:00 PM so it was a bit early for most folks. We eat at the “old folks” time (5:00) and generally it beats all the restaurant rushes. I’m use to eating at that time because of work so Shannon just goes along with the flow.
I’m using a new photo feature. Just click on any image to see a larger one and then while the larger one is displayed click on the left or right side of the image to navigate to the next photo.
They had a neat “setting” in their window so I snapped a shot of it. I liked it because of the shadows.
Here are the famous Spring Rolls. I took a bite from mine before I remembered I was going to take pictures while we ate.
I usually get Bun; which is a room temperature rice noodle. I got it with Shrimp, Chicken, and Beef with Mild seasoning. I can’t take the heat – or I should say my tummy can’t take the heat. The little metal cup is full of a peanut and anchovy vinaigrette to pour over the dish.
Shannon got something at the hottest level of heat and it had Shrimp and Tofu. He didn’t like their Tofu – said it tasted like burnt french toast.
Here Shannon is with Jaki on the couch. It’s kind of a weird pose. It was actually caught while they were both moving – but Shannon thought it looked good so I kept it. Jaki moves so much it’s hard to get her captured on a camera!
It was a fun evening and I got to use my new Fuji Camera!
An update on my hives and boils. Everything is about all cleared up. The nasty thing under my arm is healed up so much you can’t even tell it had a wick coming out of it. Luckily the hives didn’t come back when the medicine ended.
