    Vietnamese Fresh Rolls with BBQ Pork Meatballs - The Lemon Bowl

    Growing up, my dad would take me and my sisters out for “Sushi Saturday” every weekend. Sunday dinner often took place at a local Vietnamese restaurant where I learned how to roll my own bbq pork fresh rolls at the age of 12. And a visit to Berkeley to see my dad’s side of the family was never complete without a trip to dim sum in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

      1. Aww thank you so much Natasha. I wasn’t planning to eat it like that but in the summer months I end up always coming up with new ways to eat all of the fresh produce. :) Enjoy!

    1. I crave Asian food. I definitely eat it once a week and more. It’s good I have on the West coast, because there is plethora of Asian food available. Yes! This sauce looks soooo good. I pinned it. I do not want to lose track of it.
