The spicy hoisin mixed with peanut sauce was the perfect match for the prawn rolls and memorable for me. The sweet coffee cream puff was also divine.
AAA Inspector Notes
This chic Vietnamese spot features a display kitchen that serves exceptionally well-prepared and artfully presented food. The menu presents interesting vegetarian, beef and seafood dishes, including roasted cauliflower with egg and a shallot jam, pork chop with a lemongrass-chili paste, roasted duck stuffed with kaffir lime leaves and fried whole fluke with Vietnamese herbs. An all-day coffee shop is located in the same complex. The chef also offers a three-course tasting menu. The chef’s famous crispy fried chicken is popular and is served with a caramelized fish sauce and chili, just to make it more interesting.
