This popular restaurant is lovely, simple and authentic yet full of style and class.
Tasty choices include:
Banh Bot Chien
Aunty 5’s rice cakes with tiger prawns,
caramelised pork, pork floss and shallot oil $21 (just as good as the reviews say).
Ca Chien, Sot Da Ua va Com Nghe $39
Pan fried fish marinated with dill, yoghurt and turmeric with bok choy and rice noodles
Cai Xanh, Dau va Cay Toi Xao Sot XO
beans and garlic shoots wok tossed with Red
Lantern XO sauce $16
All good selections but more than enough for two modest appetites.
An alternate plan for two would be to order three smaller dishes or entrees such as
Goi Ga Nuong Nghe
Char grilled turmeric chicken with white cabbage, fried shallots, peanuts, Vietnamese herbs and sweet fish sauce
Goi Mit, Cay va Du Du (G)(V)
Salad of young jackfruit, green papaya, cherry tomato and Vietnamese herbs $18
Wine by the glass starts at $10 for a small pour.
One thought on “Luke Ngyuen’s Red Lanterne, Riley Street, Surry Hills”
Yum looks wonderful. I must get to the restaurant he has here in Brisbane.
