Surprisingly, with the amount of posts dedicated to Cabramatta’s younger sister, Canley Vale on this blog, I can’t remember the last time I visited Cabramatta and had a decent walk around. We visited Cabra on a weekday and it was absolutely packed with people, as though it was a public holiday. (I can’t imagine trying to find a park on the weekend, I’d probably have a nervous breakdown!).
Anyway, we headed to Bau Truong on John St, next to Commonwealth Bank and this place was packed to the brim! It was definitely a sign of good things to come! Here’s what we ate…
Noodles with Vietnamese Pork Meat Balls (Bun nem nuong)
Crispy skin chicken rice (and the egg taken from the next dish!)
Special Rice (Bun Dac Biet) - rice with egg cake, egg, pork chop and salad.
Overall, everything was great! The restaurant has great service, modern decor, delicious food and the bill worked out to be around $11-$13 per dish. Great value for a very satisfying meal.
On a side note; has everyone checked out the Sydney International Food Festival website and what’s happening around Sydney in October? Where do you guys want to go? (http://www.siff.com.au/).
Everything looks amazing, particularly the Sugar Hit, Pop up Dinner and Let’s Do Lunch options. I really want to do the bread making class @ Brasserie. I also noticed that Luke Nguyen is conducting food tours of Cabramatta for $190 per person! I’m no celebrity chef / expert but I’ll conduct a frigging food tour for free*!!
