Other People’s Cooking: Dà Nang Restaurant

Shrimp and Papaya Salad
My fellow Rogue Estate residents and our friends have been making a concerted effort to seek out more of the Metro Detroit area's uncommon culinary gems as of late and it's a trend I'm thrilled to be a part of. We've been discovering some wonderful cuisine and making great new friends along the way. Such is the case with Da Nang in Clawson, Michigan - a contemporary locale offering traditional Vietnamese menu crafted with quality ingrediants, decades of skill and much love. Every dish a work of art that pleases the eyes as well as the palette. The backbone of any Vietnamese restaurant is of course the Ph? or hot broth and noodle soup. Da Nang's is made in the traditional manner, providing clarified broth that is full of flavor but not full of fat. Several varieties are offered including beef, chicken and shrimp with all the usual condiments to really customize your dish. It's a hearty, filling meal that is sure to please and a wonderful introduction to the culture for the uninitiated. A beautiful array of starters, sides and other dishes await your discovery as well - two of note which I've had the pleasure of eating and can highly recommend are the spring rolls and the G?i ?u ??, an amazingly refreshing and flavorful shrimp and papaya salad. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Da Nang and I hope you'll drop in to visit Kim and her staff soon. Share your experiences in the comments.
