Veggie House, Canley Vale, Vietnamese Vegetarian

Classy Vietnamese Vegetarian. About time, heh? Gentrification is coming to restaurants in the area, and the humble vego eatery is no exception.

On the surface there’s nothing to distinguish Kaffir Lime from a dozen or so Thai-Lao in the Cabramatta-Fairfield area, the home of Green Peppercorn, Holy Basil and Twelve Spices. But one taste of their fish cake and you know the folks here know their stuff. I’m not a fan of fish cakes that are over-cooked, dry, with little fish texture – all you can taste is the batter, and the whole thing need to be washed down with...
