Since I traveled to Vietnam, 5 years ago, and learned to cook Vietnamese cuisine, I did not go to any Vietnamese restaurant,... till this weekend! My good friend Veronica brought me to this big restaurant, located in Leidsestraat, in the centre of Amsterdam.
I was a little bit doubtful about the quality of the cuisine as, the location made me think it would be more a tourists restaurant. But I had a great experience and I want to share it with you!
As starter, we shared some spring rolls and imperial rolls. The first ones are the raw and fresh version, when the second ones are fried.
nuoc nam sauce with garlic, it was delicious! freshly made, rich and really similar to the ones I had in Vietnam. After the first bite, I was traveling back to my memories and great time I spent there!
As main, I chose some caramel lamb rack and Veronica had some rice noodles with prawns. Both were really nice and delicious! Veronica even said that the noodles were addictive!
The prices are really correct, so, there is not excuse to not try it!
