Last Summer, my friends RC, M1ke and Mr Dave took a trip to Vietnam to visit our friend CC. CC has been living and teaching in Vietnam for a good couple of years (apart from the few months doing his PGCE). He’s a music teacher and also a pretty epic pianist. Anyway, back to the grub. Travelling around Vietnam really gave RC, M1ke and Mr Dave an education in Vietnamese cuisine, starting with a bowl of pho every morning for breakfast.
Last week RC invited us all to Viet Village, a Vietnamese restaurant it Bury that has received some great reviews from people who have visited. I personally loved all of the dishes I tried, especially the pho which was comfort food at its best.
To start with Miss B and I shared Summer rolls and Spring rolls. The Spring rolls were delicious, not too oily which they can be. I loved the Summer rolls, they were deliciously fresh and looked so pretty.
I followed this with seafood pho. This was really really lovely. It was light and tasty and filling without feeling weighed down with too much food.
Here is a selection of some other photos I took of other people’s dinners…..
As official designated driver I finished off my meal with some iced coffee.
A wonderful and very reasonably priced meal. If you live in or near to Bury, this restaurant is well worth a visit, My only regret about the whole night was not getting a picture of RC’s traditional Vietnamese outfit to show you all.
