Chef Chat, Part 3: Minh Nguyen of Café TH

This week we've been chatting with Minh Nguyen of Café TH. Today we sample some of his favorite dishes.

First up with that evening's dinner special: papaya and shrimp noodle salad. This special was made with very fine vermicelli rice noodles. The noodles, papaya and shrimp are tossed in a dressing that's sweet and sour with a little kick from the Thai chili peppers. The salad is topped with fried shallots, minced mint leaves and peanuts.
