Something Savoury To Start!
To begin your adventure make your way to Thao’s Kitchen which can be found at the top of the Richmond end of Victoria Street, close to the intersection with Lennox St. Thao’s Kitchen is known for its classic home made flavours and the owner Thao is always there waiting for you with a smile!
Here you’ll be indulging in some great vegetarian spring rolls, flavoursome skewers and Thao's Kitchen’s very popular rice paper rolls (which of course have all of the sauce on the side for that nut allergy)!
Before you move on
You will find Huong Huong Bakery on the way, which has been open for more than 3 decades.
It is run by a very pleasant husband and wife team who are always warm and welcoming. They always have freshly made buns and we definitely recommend you to stop by on your next visit to Victoria Street!
There is no preferred meat in Vietnam. Instead, beef, pork, chicken, fish and various kinds of seafood are all used in almost all dishes. The most popular dish for family events is Spring Rolls.
Vietnamese spring rolls are made with rice flour, at least one meat, veggies, eggs, pepper and seasoning and are very light on the palate which is why they are a perfect start to your night!
Game: Fortunately, Unfortunately...
This is a storytelling game that where one person starts a story and you alternate between inventing good and bad luck situations. It works really well if you’ve recently experienced something frustrating and can create a funny story about what could have actually happened!
1. The first person comes up with the premise. “Once there were two identical twins who could always hear each other’s thoughts.”
2. Person two adds with a turn-for-the-worse plot twist. “Unfortunately, one day, one of them got Frank Walker’s National Tiles radio ad stuck in his head.”
3. Person three takes the story on a turn for the better. “Fortunately, …” (we can’t actually think of any positives for this scenario but you might be more creative!)
