Yesterday Shannon suggested take-out food from Brattleboro's newest restaurant, The Humble Kitchen. It's a food cart in the Harmony parking lot that serves Vietnamese street food, sourced locally where ever possible.
Wow, is it delicious and worth the trip, even if you're travelling from NH, MA or anywhere in Southern Vermont.
Fried mango wontons with a sugar lime sauce might sound a little exotic but you have to try them. I can't even begin to describe how wonderful they are.
In addition they have specialty dishes for meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans, like the Banh Mi sandwich, Hot Noodle Soup, Summer Noodle Bowl and a salad with local greens & ginger-lime or toasted sesame vinaigrette.
Today was opening day for The Humble Kitchen and by all accounts they had a nice turnout of support from the community. If you live in the Southern Vermont area, be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity to enjoy authentic fresh, Vietnamese cuisine. I guarantee you'll be glad you did.
