12 of us made the drive down to Cabramatta
We made a bee-line for Phu Quoc, a traditional Vietnamese restaurant. It’s tiny, and was packed when we got there despite it not even being noon yet. “No problem. 5 minutes!” said to our waiter. We gave each other strange looks – I mean, the tables were all full, how would they be able to fit 12 people in?! But by some stroke of magic, they really did clear tables for us and we squished in 😛
The Vietnamese experts in our group ordered, and boy, did they order. I think we ordered double what each person could actually eat 😉 It seemed like we ordered one of every item on the menu – there was SO MUCH FOOD that the waiters couldn’t actually fit it on our table, so we had to quickly scoop food onto our plates so the next set of dishes could be served. Very funny 😛 We were rolling around a bit woozy from all the food afterwards, and the price came to a mind-bogglingly cheap $20pp, insane because of the sheer amount of food we’d ordered!
After that, we walked around the little Vietnamese shops and also stopped for some dessert. It was a great afternoon with gorgeous weather – quite unbelievable since we’re technically officially in winter, yet it was warm and sunny outside. So lovely!
WHERE’S OUR FOOOOOOD?!
I love how you can help yourself to cutlery, sauces and tissues

Deep-fried quail – just like KFC, but I didn’t like the fiddly bones

A piece of pig blood jelly. OMG!!!!

You wrap it up in a lettuce leaf and some vermicelli, then dip in the sauce. Mmm!
