I think that is the name of one of the dishes it came in, so that's
probably the right herb...  I'm actually trying to get the plant
itself if possible.  I thought it would make a nice addition to my herb
garden...  I live in Houston, which definitely qualifies as a hot and wet
place (most of the time, anyway.)  I tried getting a few sprigs of the
fresh herb from a local restaurant, but I wasn't able to get them to root.
If I can find the scientific name of the plant, I may be able to get a nursery
to special-order some seeds.

Thanks for the info on the Vietnamese name!
