For an extraordinary culinary adventure that will transport you to the bustling streets of Hanoi, make your way to Banh Cuon Ba Oanh. This hidden gem nestled among the Vietnamese eateries on Marrickville’s Illawarra Road focuses on one extraordinary dish – banh cuon.
Delicate rice-paper sheets, expertly made in-house, are filled with a savory mixture of pork mince and shredded wood-ear mushrooms, then meticulously folded into delectable parcels. Served alongside cha que (garlicky Vietnamese pork sausages), tangy dipping sauce, fresh herbs, and crispy fried onions, each bite of banh cuon is an experience of pure silkiness and exquisite taste.
While banh cuon takes centre stage, the menu also features a few other delectable options. Indulge in xoi, a turmeric-coloured sticky rice with dried mung bean paste, fried onions and pork floss, or savour the comforting flavours of congee, a chicken broth topped with fried bread, pickles and pork innards. And finish off your meal with che buoi, a delightful dessert comprising iced coconut milk, pomelo-pith crackers and chewy tapioca jelly.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
