My Thuan Restaurant
How was it?
Novelty 'Heineken' toothpick holder amongst other condiments
Lunch in Cabramatta is always a bit tricky. Especially on the weekend. If you can manage to find a parking spot and weave your way through the crowds, there are many gems to be found.
I recently dined at My Thuan with my family. I've been there a number of times, and I always get the same thing - I can't help it! It has got to be my favourite Vietnamese dish, or actually one of my favourite dishes period. That would be 'Bun Thit Nuong' (see below). It contains rice vermicelli with grilled beef slices, some veges (lettuce, cucumber, carrot, beansprout) and crushed peanuts. Pour some 'nuoc mam' (fish sauce) on top and it's pretty much perfection and it's hard to go wrong with this dish.

Banh Hoi Thit Nuong $10.00
Steamed rice vermicelli, some veges and grilled pork served on a platter with a stack of rice paper. Firstly you dip the rice paper in some hot water so that it becomes soft and sticky. Next, place your rice vermicelli, meat and veges onto the rice paper and then roll it up, dip it in some sauce and enjoy. I like this dish, however I often can't be bothered with getting my hands dirty :)
Bun Thit Nuong $8.00
My favourite dish! I always look for this on the menu at Vietnamese restaurants. I will either get the grilled pork (thit nuong) or the grilled pork balls (nam nuong). It's pretty much the same as the dish before (banh hoi thit nuong), except this is the lazy person's option. And I like mixing everything together and eating in the bowl.
- The food
- Lots of locals dine here (always a good sign)
- Fast service
- Can get a bit rowdy with the hordes of people inside
Great simple Vietnamese food. It's cheap and it's fast - the essence of Cabramatta.
