Eat This: Mung Bean Spring Rolls at Banh Mi So No. 1


Banh Mi So No. 1
boasts of its spring roll superiority for good reason. The mung bean spring rolls are what every vegetarian version aspires to be: a careful balance of tender rice noodles, crisp lettuce, fresh mint and a surprising crunch of fried mung bean sprouts, all expertly wrapped in delicate rice paper. A quick dip in the salty, savory soy-based sauce is all that’s needed to make this (as the neon sign out front proclaims) St. Louis’ best spring roll.
