Come along to dinner as we try to recreat some of our favourite dishes.
Summer rolls - delicate, fresh and fragrant we take transparent rice paper and fill them with vegetables and vegetables or grilled lemongrass chicken then you choose one of the many dipping sauces to dunk them in to, chilli jam, sriracha (its really hot) peanut, light soya and nuoc cham.
Vietnamese rib eye steak and mango salad (ask Alan about the night that I ate this and he ordered chicken feet!!) The sweetness from the mango and the crunch from the carrots help combat the heat from the marinade. I can make it with or without beef. (this can be vegan too)
Larb - made with pork mince this rice based dish is joy to eat, crunchy vegetables, salted peanuts and then finished off with Vietnamese basil that has a hint of aniseed to it - delicious. (this can be vegan too)
Vietnamese chicken meatballs - If I gave you the list of ingredients you would pull your face and never put one of these in your mouth so instead they will just appear, you will eat one and fall in love.
Sit fried greens with a hint of garlic.
Sticky rice - you need this to help you manage the chopsticks!
We didn't really have any puddings in Vietnam but we did have ice-cream (flavours will depend on what's in the freezer), meringue (there's always meringues) and one other pudding TBC.
