“excellent traditional Vietnamese spring rolls”
Review of Gigi's

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Once again I bought traditional spring rolls to go as the main part of my supper and really enjoyed them. About five good sized whole shrimp, with no parts of shell at all, are the main protein. The combination of pieces of thin rice "vermicelli", shredded carrots and lettuce, with mint is very tasty indeed. The rolls are wrapped in soft rice paper and are very different from deep fried egg rolls elsewhere. They're meant to be eaten cold. The peanut sauce for dipping. the rolls in or sprinkling on them after cutting them up probably contains soy sauce and is a bit salty but not excessively so. A great light supper, especially in hot weather. Very satisfying and highly recommended.

I'd eaten at Gig's before the pandemic and have gotten takeout food there probably five times since the COVID-19 arrived. I'm very fond of the Vietnamese crepe with shrimp, pork and vegetables. It's fried but not too greasy, and it comes with a good salad. I first encountered cold Vietnamese spring rolls, wrapped in rice "paper", at a farmers' market on Martha's Vineyard years ago. Gigi's version is very good, with plenty of shrimp and other good stuff. I also like dishes with "bun" (Vietnamese vermicelli); the fish sauce you can use on it is much like the "gram" the ancient Romans liked.

Always feel this food is a healthy resort to eating out. Never overly salty, saucy, sweet. Just clean and good. Nice prices too
