If you’ve never tried Vietnamese food go now and try. Your stomach can thank me later.
If you need a little more convincing here are a few action shots from my visit to “Spring” last weekend, a new restaurant which has popped up in my locality:
Chicken Salad (Goi Ga) – onion, peppers, basil, mint, chicken, peanut, cilantro, sweet & sour dressing
Prawn Spring Rolls (Gỏi cuốn) – little parcels of fresh goodness with Nước chấm dipping sauce
Baguette (Bánh Mi Thit) – French bread containing paté, ham, and various vegetables garnished with coriander
This was my third experience of Vietnamese food (the other times being in Guangzhou and Seoul) and although it was just a light lunch everything was delicious and healthy with so many fresh vegetables. The decor was also pretty tasty with a simple green/grey colour scheme.
If they eat this kind of thing every day in Vietnam then I’d say they have it pretty well!
