REVIEW: MINH MINH SAIGON SOUL 21ST ANNIVERSARY DINNER, RICHMOND
21 years is quite the milestone, whether it’s a birthday or the number of years that a restaurant has been in operation. The folks behind Minh Minh Saigon Soul would know having reached this milestone recently. The momentous occasion was celebrated with… you guessed it, a tasty spread of traditional and Modern Vietnamese cuisine including some new menu items. The traditional dishes like the lalot (grilled beef wrapped in betel leaf) were well executed, and flavour profiles nailed to a T, while those with a modern twist both highlighted and reinvigorated the underlying authentic tones. Having grown up with Vietnamese cuisine myself, it wasn’t hard to see why Minh Minh Saigon Soul remains one of the top Vietnamese eateries on Victoria Street and all of Melbourne.
Lalot - grilled beef in vine leaf.
Sexy quail - with butter, crunchy onion, garlic, spring onion, salt, lime and pepper.
Shaker shaker squid - crispy with lemon and pepper sauce, and coleslaw.
