If you like cuisine with a Vietnamese, Thai or Laotian flair, I got your spot.

  • House 1830 in Rogers opened about six months ago with little fanfare, but I'm now a big fan.
  • It's terrific food and I can't wait to go back.

Dig in: The Bun Thit Nuong ($28) is a Vietnamese bowl of rice noodles, grilled pork, a spring roll and vegetables so fresh I'm pretty sure they were pulled from the dirt after I ordered.

  • The warm pork and cold noodles, set off by a semisweet, semi-sour dressing, made this a dinnertime go-to for me the next time I'm nearby.

My companion settled on two appetizers for their meal: The salt-and-pepper tofu ($10) and the wing trio ($16), where you pick three of four available flavors.

  • Tofu ain't my thing, but these cubes were toasted to crispy perfection on the outside and were delightfully creamy on the inside.

Yes, but: The wings. These are real wings, not some half-hearted bar food designed to make you order beer.

  • We sampled the salt-and-pepper, honey ginger and spicy tamarind varieties.
  • All were impressive. All satisfied.
  • The spicy wings de-liv-ered! They get two thumbs and several sticky fingers up.

Check it out: 106 W. Elm Street, Suite 102, Rogers. Serving 11am-2pm and 5pm-9pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
