Last night I dined with two authors, well actually they were friends and family so nothing itimindating, Geesche Jacobsen, author of Abandoned: The Diane Brimble Story out this month and Walter Mason, my partner, author of Destination Saigon.
Given Walter’s book was about Vietnam and Geesche’s was about the justice system, Saigon Bay, a Vietnamese restaurant across the road from the courts in Tailor Square seemed perfect. I think Geesche was expecting me to use my magic Sydney food blog wand and select Sydney’s best Vietnamese restaurant, instead I chose the most relevant one.
We had relatively standard Vietnamese fare: spring rolls for starters, canh chua, goi and Hanoi fish (which I failed to take a picture of because of the low lighting and my limited photography skills).
|Canh Chua: Vietnamese sour soup|
The goi was made with banana flower, although this version, it was just too soggy for my tastes.
|Goi: salad with banana flower|
I wouldn’t be rushing back, but it was fine for our celebration.
