Vietnamese food is a particularly attractive combination of fresh ingredients and familiar Asian flavors. Add the current popularity of its steamy noodle soup, pho, and it's no wonder that right now, Vietnamese food is hot, hot, hot. Indochine, which opened last May in an unassuming storefront in a Midtown stretch of Charles Street, covers the Vietnamese bases, from simple appetizers like rolls and dumplings to traditionally flavored rice dishes....

PITTSBURGH - The government of Vietnam stinks. But it doesn't stink nearly as much as it did just a few years ago, and it is likely to stink less in the near future. If we are shrewd, we can accelerate the rate at which the government of Vietnam de-stinks. But we must have the patience to realize that change will come at an Asian pace, not an American one. There will be no significant moves toward genuine free enterprise, human rights, or democracy until the war generation in the Communist Party leadership has passed away.

The third time is the charm - at least that's what fans of Saigon Remembered are hoping. Originally located on Belair Road, then on York Road in Govans, Saigon Remembered closed its doors in 2011. But the restaurant reopened last month in the CranbrookShopping Center in Cockeysville, with the same friendly service and careful interpretations of Vietnamese specialties that fans will remember. Vegetarian-friendly and healthful, Vietnamesefoodrelies on fresh herbs and vegetables for flavor.

BERLIN -- On Buddha's birthday, Vietnamese here gather in their storefront temple on Krefelderstrasse to worship before an altar bedecked with fruit and flowers, silk lotus blossoms, burning candles and smoking incense.They sing and chant the sutras, eat spring rolls and curries, laugh with their children, sit under the old flag of South Vietnam, and talk of their lost homeland.The drapes are drawn and Berlin is shut out for a while. Vietnamese are under considerable pressure in Germany, especially in East Berlin and what used to be Communist Germany.

Mai's America is one of those wonderful, out-of-left-field documentaries that makes writing about independent films such an educational delight. It follows a North Vietnamese teen-ager as she arrives in the United States on a student exchange program. And while she discovers that almost everything she thought she knew about America was wrong, it's the American viewer who has the most to learn about our land of opportunity. Filmmaker Marlo Poras describes Mai as a "spunky, mini-skirted daughter of Ho Chi Minh's revolution."

And Pigtown is showing signs of rebirth.

As Saigon was falling, Van Nguyen bounced about in the South China Sea in a battered boat with a dead engine. After two days, a U.S. Navy ship approached. He clambered aboard. On deck, finally safe, Nguyen found himself on the unsteady threshold of his new life. Eventually finding his way to the Washington area, the former police officer worked night and day jobs, pooled money with relatives and hardly ever slept. In the quarter-century since arriving in the United States, he finally found his solid ground: A front yard and a place in the American middle class.

In many cultures, especially Asian, a humble facade hides a fancy home inside. In this case, though, the inside of Pho Dat Thanh (pronounced "Foe Daht Than") in Snowden Marketplace, Columbia, isn't all that fancy, either. A single room, with a small bar to one side near the entrance, features silvery green walls with a tangerine-hued chair rail in the middle and rather non-descript prints above. The tables are bare-topped, with a stainless basket of condiments providing a bit of color.

The dish : Tai Chin ($6.95) At the very least, this pho with round steak and brisket is as accessible to the first-timer as any Vietnamese recipe, aside from, maybe, a spring roll. The pho curious can start with Tai Chin as an introduction to an exotic staple at a bargain price. For the pho lover who wouldn't dream of a bowl without tendon and tripe, An Loi offers, in all, a dozen pho selections. Given the exceptionally neutral tones of cooked beef and rice noodles, the broth needs to carry the day. An Loi's Tai Chin does, with subtly and a deceptively simple flavor.

Mazen Abdulwahab chose No. 6. His brother picked No. 3. Another boy went with No. 9. By next week, those numbers and the boys' first names will adorn jerseys now being produced for the Tigers, the fledgling soccer squad these young Iraqi refugees have formed in Northeast Baltimore. And a week from Saturday, the Tigers will meet up with three other well-outfitted refugee teams, thanks to Peter and Allison Tran, owners of the EmbroidMe apparel shop in Fullerton. They offered to provide 60 sets of specially ordered shorts and jerseys for $1,300 rather than the $4,000 they'd normally charge.

Where can I find an herb plant known as Vietnamese coriander or daun laksa, "laksa leaf"? I found the fresh herb in an Asian market, but I'd prefer to have my own plant. Finding this herb really can be tricky because it goes by so many names: Vietnamese coriander, Vietnamese mint, daun laksa, daun kesam and rau ram, among others. All those common names boil down to one botanical name, polygonum odoratum, a member of the buckwheat family. Its flavor is distinctive, and the herb is used in cooking in Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

Iraqis who have worked for the United States have put their lives on the line - the least the U.S. can do for them now is grant them visas to come live here. Take interpreters, for instance - who are so necessary because there are still so few Arabic speakers in the U.S. military, more than five years after 9/11. They've served alongside soldiers and Marines, in battle and in raids - 5,000 of them. Many have been killed, and more wounded. Dozens are being treated for severe injuries at a hospital in Jordan, and many of them believe they can't go back to Iraq because their work on America's behalf will mark them as dead men. Let them in. Since the war began in 2003, the U.S. has admitted just 466 Iraqi refugees, according to Ellen R. Sauerbrey, assistant secretary of state.
