This weekend I was invited to eat lunch in a Vietnamese restaurant. I’ve never tried Vietnamese food before and all I can say is that I had the best lunch ever.
This week’s post is another food post but instead of sharing a recipe I am sharing my review and experience at Capitol I, a Vietnamese restaurant. This weekend I was invited to eat lunch in a Vietnamese restaurant. I’ve never tried Vietnamese food before and all I can say is that I had the best lunch ever.
The main curses: Pho Bo soup and spicy noodles with prawns and raw egg. Well, for my brother was not spicy at all but it was for me, haha. My favourite main course was definitely the Pho Bo soup, a beef and noodles soup. This soup is one of the most popular soups in this restaurant and, apparently, in Vietnam too.
They also served us some beef rolls and some vegetables rolls while we were waiting for our Pho Bo soup and spicy noodles. The interesting thing about these rolls is that you have to wrap them up with a lettuce leaf, a mint leaf and some vinegar with spices.
The second courses: Vietnamese fried rice, Vietnamese duck curry and prawns wrapped in rice paper rolls. My favourite second course was, without doubt, the prawns wrapped in rice paper rolls. They were EVERYTHING. The duck was also delicious but it was a little bit spicy (and I’m not a big fan of spicy food). The Vietnamese fried rice tastes similar like the Chinese fried rice.
Now let’s talk about desserts. OH. MY GOD. These desserts are so so so good. First of all we have Banh Cam, Vietnamese sesame balls. This is one of the most famous and beloved Vietnamese desserts. For those who don’t know what Banh Cam is, it’s a golden brown shell of sesame studded rice flour that is crispy on the outside yet chewy on the inside, yielding to a sweet and moist mung bean coconut filling. I’ve tried Banh Cam before and they are one of my favourite desserts. Then we have a chocolate ice cream ball with some little macho, a type of banana, wrapped in egg rolls. I’ve also tried these before. And last but not least, we have the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever tried: ginger ice cream. This ice cream is now my favourite ice cream flavour. When you try it for the first time you can really taste the ginger and then it tastes sweet.
I really, really liked all the food that we had at this Vietnamese restaurant. It is a good restaurant, not too big and it was so nice. The costumer service is so good as well. They were so nice and they even recommended us some second courses. The price is also good. It is affordable for everyone’s wallet. They have different menus with different prices.
