    This is a nice light spring roll, outside of the peanut butter its pretty darn good for you! Restaurants charge $3.50-$4.50 for two of these, and most of the time they're not very fresh. This is a must eat fresh item, its like sushi, after a few hours its not so good.

    Looks tasty, although we make ours different.

    Also, isn't that "Bahn Thrang"? I've never heard of gio cuon, but I have heard of bahn cuon and cha gio(egg-roll/fried spring roll).

    Also, for the sauce, it's much better when you mix in coconut milk in there(forgot the recipe though).

    Linh says Banh Trang is what the rice paper is called. Goi cuon is what the spring rolls are called.

    plus the fried spring rolls are called cha gio. different type of roll all together.

    As for the coconut milk, she said shes never had it with that both in the states and in Vietnam, however if thats what you like then mix it in.

    I love fresh spring rolls. My step mom makes bomb ones. I usually buy them though when I go to pho.

    Not to down with the whole peanut flavor thing (with any Asian food in general), but otherwise it looks damn tasty.

    That's what its served with, its on the side, some people use it some don't It's like serving buffalo wings with blu cheese, half the people hate it and think it takes away from the wings and the other half can't go with out it.

    I actually like a sweet plum sauce with mine. I'm not sure of the name, but my step mother usually serves them with it.
