Green Tea & Chopsticks

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’s a few action shots from my visit to “Spring” last weekend, a new restaurant which has popped up in my locality:

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad (Goi Ga) – onion, peppers, basil, mint, chicken, peanut, cilantro, sweet & sour dressing

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Prawn Spring Rolls (Gỏi cuốn) – little parcels of fresh goodness with Nước chấm dipping sauce

Vietnamese Sandwich

Baguette (Bánh Mi Thit) – French bread containing paté, ham, 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 everyday in Vietnam then I’d say they have it pretty well!

    I concur, Vietnamese cuisine is excellent. Must be helped by the French influence.
