Co'm Dunwoody Vietnamese Grill Restaurant Review

: In Indochina, the culinary traditions of France and Thailand as well as Vietnam craft a unique cuisine. This chic suburban outpost of Asian fare offers a very good green papaya salad. Julienned green mango and apple are tossed with peanuts for a crisp tangle of textures and flavors bound by a slightly sweet vinaigrette. Packed with vegetables, the lamb stew --- lamb bourguignon --- is a French-inspired dish whose seasoning level may be adjusted to suit individual palates. The Vietnamese crêpe should be torn into pieces and enfolded in a rice wrapper with lettuce and vegetables, then dipped in dressing. Grilled meats or seafood adorn rice noodles, also to be wrapped in the aforementioned manner. Five-spice lamb ribs come with rice pasta and grilled asparagus. Wok-cooked Vietnamese shaking beef is a classic of the region. We fell for the banana coconut roll with vanilla ice cream; "Vietnamese-style" flan is an option, too. The wine list attempts to pair food and wine, but it could be more interesting without being pricey; there is a Riesling offered, and it's a good one (Dr. Loosen). Solution? Bring your own and pay the reasonable $15 corkage fee. Don't miss the iced Vietnamese coffee.
