The Overview

For some of the most outstanding spring rolls you'll try anywhere in the world, head to Quan Nem, a buzzing lunch spot that specializes in nem cua be, plump, deep-fried, rectangular packages stuffed with chopped crab, glass noodles, ear mushrooms and steamed bean sprouts. A recipe that originated in the northern coastal city of Haiphong, the parcels of goodness are so huge that servers armed with large metal scissors are on hand to cut them into bite-size morsels. The nem are eaten with a bowl of steamed rice vermicelli, a heaping pile of fresh herbs (a flourish that sets northern Vietnamese food apart in countless dishes), and a dip consisting of fish sauce, pickled cucumbers, chopped garlic and red chilis.
