I was in Richmond the other day and wanted a quick snack so I dropped into Nhu Lan to see what they had. I wasn't in the mood for Banh Mi (sacrilege I know) so I decided to try the Vietnamese Pate Chaud Pork Puff for $1.50.
I don't know much about these pastries but they are undoubtably yet another awesome French influenced Vietnamese delicacy. The pastry is crispy and light and the filling is actually reminiscent of a sausage roll and equally delicious.
I wouldn't say the filling is substantial but for $1.50 what do you expect. Anyway, I found it a great little lunchtime snack that still left room for more Richmond deliciousness. Hey, when you're eating lunch in Richmond you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket!
