This is Tam's Place Vietnamese Cuisine. It's her little slice of Vietnam in Eugene.
"I moved here from straight from Vietnam, and then for the first few years, I was really homesick. I missed all of the food in Vietnam," Tam said. "I just love cooking and then I do something for everybody here to enjoy the authentic Vietnamese food."
Tam's Place serves Vietnamese food from the area around Ho Chi Minh City- that's where she lived. The menu features dishes like vermicelli noodles, decorated with fresh vegetables and crispy meat.
Another popular dish is the broken rice plate. It comes with Vietnamese rice, a pork chop, chicken or tofu, shrimp and a piece of Vietnamese meatloaf. It also comes with pickled carrots, daikon and cucumber.
Tam is a crispy roll-rolling, pork chop-grilling, Vietnamese-food-making machine! It's a tight fit in the truck, but that doesn't stop her. There's a lot of culinary delights to explore at Tam's food truck- check it out in the parking lot of The Healthy Pet.
