Vietnamese Street Food Brought To Life

Beautiful food at Streets of Saigon, Westfield Sydney

Another quality food establishment that opened at Westfield Sydney around the 19th of July 2012. Welcome to the Streets of Saigon. This establishment might give Miss Chu's a good run for their money.

Amazing street like ambience

Street of Saigon came to life from the owner who was brought up in Saigon. She grew up enjoying the best street based Vietnamese food. She brought this concept into a bistro-style Vietnamese eatery. Definitely has that tuck shop feel for sure. It is easy to feel like you are eating out on the streets of Vietnam.

The Streets of Saigon Vibe is alive

Clever (and rather simple) ambience. Great signs reflecting the street theme. The no frills wooden seating is also a reflection of this mood. Last night (as at the time of writing this) was my only opportunity (since the store opened recently) to enjoy a quick and delicious feed. The ambience definitely takes you back to those sun drenched street stalls in those high traffic walking areas of Vietnam.

My meal as I sat it down on my table

You order at the counter, and then you are given a buzzer to come up and collect your food. That pub bistro feeling is definitely alive. I ordered four Fresh Rice Paper Rolls ($9.90) and two Vegetarian Spring Rolls ($4.00) and my order was ready to collect within 5-10 minutes. Just as well because I was feeling a bit hungry.

Yum. Can't wait to dig in...

So far a fantastic Vietnamese pit stop food experience. The vermicelli, herbs, prawns and thinly sliced pork pieces were extremely fresh and flavoursome in my rice paper rolls. It was so easy to stand up and order some more. The rice was not overpowering. The peanut sauce that came with this dish was just sensational. The only problem was that I wanted more. The rolls complimented the peanut sauce nicely. They would have gone down just as well with some chilli sauce too. You might be forgiven for salivating right now, especially if you're a lover of Vietnamese food.

My Vegetarian Spring Rolls were crunchy, and surprisingly filling and delicious. A beautiful combination of subtle tastes of tofu with a variety of different vegetable flavours thrown into the mix. The light soya sauce blended in nicely with these rolls. Once I finished eating these spring rolls, I used the remaining soya sauce (with a hint of chilli) and spread it liberally over my rice paper rolls. They tasted just as great.

Simple food heaven.

Apart from the rolls, you can also choose from a variety of Vietnamese salads, rice, desserts and pho noodles to name. It is great to know that their food is also gluten free. I will be back for more and more. Thank you Streets of Saigon for bringing quality Vietnamese food to Sydney.

No one in the shopping center seemed to know where it was so I gave up and came home.
