No. 20 of my fav things in Cabramatta.
The best meal you have from Cabramatta may not be the food that you consume here, but the food you take home.
Unfortunately, most people are so excited by all the choices, they end up filling up their stomachs before they can even sample a fraction of the food. The biggest mistake (don’t worry if you’ve done this, you’re not the only one!) is having a fruit shakes all to yourself. Fruit shakes are a MUST DO but they are BLOODY HUGE (even the SMALL size =400mL). Without pacing yourself (or sharing everything) you’ll quickly find that you’re already full (Epic appetite FAIL!).
Working here til 5:30PM everyday means that I buy take away A LOT. This post is dedicated to dinner take away, I’ve also got a post on Lunch take away. The difference being that dinner meals require rice (too salty to be eaten on its own) and needs to be served hot. This is not a rule, its just how we do it at my household.
Here are my favourites:
Bao Forever – good ol’ home style cooking. Often the lovely old ladies can be seen rolling spring rolls on the communal dining tables. I come here for freshly made desserts during the day and home cooked take away in the evening.
I love the Vietnamese sour soup. There’s a choice of fish or prawns. The beef salad is great for lunch and the chicken curry is mild (coconut milk) and generous.
You’ll notice a lot of pork belly and fish dishes. Carmelised is the most common form of preparation, almost all Vietnamese households have a pot at any given time. Followed by stir fries.
