Monsieur is always keen to try new awkward drinks… And as a three color drink is served to another table, I see how suddenly keen he is to give this “drink” a go. I recall I never really liked three color drinks at all. The reason for this was that it was served with red, yellow and green, and all these colors looked like worms… Not enticing. I must say that New Saigon changed my mind. If you go there, do get a three color drink with coconut cream, red bean, mung beans and pandan jelly AUD 4. Totally worth it!!

Right behind the three color drink are the summer rolls (4 for AUD 9) with pork and prawns. I could tell these were freshly rolled… and simply delicious!
As for the Banh Khot, these little coconut and turmeric shell of crispy goodness were two times more expensive than what we usually pay for, but there were prawns on top and very fresh lettuce to accompany them. Absolutely beautiful

Sugarcane prawn vermicelli is always my go to dish in a Vietnamese restaurant. As we’re not given any knife, the prawn paste wrapping the sugarcane has been pre-cut! I loved that vermicelli bowl, though the sugarcane itself was a bit dry (I love chewing sugarcane!)

If you go to Surfers/Broadbeach, New Saigon Restaurant is your go to place. It is by far, the best restaurant we went to.
