A recipe from my local Vietnamese chef Trung. During Lockdown he started doing the most yummy Vietnamese food for collection from his home once a week . It was up there with the very best Vietnamese food I have eaten here or there , and the portions were so generous they lasted us two days. In a few days time he will be opening his own restaurant in Bristol- The Saigon Kitchen- and I cant wait to try even more of his cooking.
