The place: Le Anh’s Vietnamese Restaurant, 2901 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, (941) 355-7909

The goods: How about a tasty dinner for two for about $25?

The drill: We’ll go by the (menu) numbers and recommend one very good option. Start with #1 GauGio, superior crisp fried egg rolls at $3.50 for two, or substitute #2 GoiCuon, cool minty spring rolls in rice paper at the same price. No substitutions on main dishes, though! If you like your dinner with a nice spice kick, go for B2 Cha Gio, chicken morsels stir-fried with lemon grass, hot peppers and sweet onion ($9.95), while your dining companion opts for milder but still robust E6 Tom XaoRaoC’ai, succulent pink shrimp stir-fried with mixed veggies ($10.95), including a couple of those adorable little ears of baby corn. Both come with steamed rice, and there are tabletop condiments aplenty. Service is friendly and warm. Beer and wine are available.
